Rubble left behind after demotion of mall in Frackville, Pennsylvania.

Looking into a demolition site, piles of rubble are all that remains of a local mall after demolition. Although a former landmark and shopping destination for locals, nearby citizens have hope for the future and are assured of job creation after the lot is further developed for manufacturing / distribution uses. Although this image illustrates decline in local retail, locals view the photo as progress.
