The local intersection in my neighborhood know as "five points", because it also had a diagonal street off of it. Crossed this intersection every morning on my way to elementary school (under the watchful eye of the crossing guard named "Ida").
For a while, my cousin lived on the second floor of the Carmichael Electric Co. building on the left.
When I was a kid, my friends and I would by candy at Northwest Drug Store. When we were older, we bought the kind of magazines you hid under your mattress and hoped your mother didn't find. (She did.)
As I drove through downtown Hazleton I thought of these images and remembered what this town looked like when I was a kid. The only building the still looks the same was the tiny restaurant which I just left; the rest of the town was overcome by the cancer that plagues most of our small towns today. Nothing is the same as our population changes, now downtown Hazleton resembles a third world country.
