Bethlehem Steel Ruins
The old Bethlehem Steel facility has built a new informational walkway along the upper part of the blast furnaces. The stairs leading up to the walkway climb right past the old pump house where air was pumped to the furnaces during the steel making process. The view is just stunning but also quite depressing. The huge 28-ft diameter flywheels all lined up and quiet. Their power gone, now turned into a tourist attraction.
