The site of the old steelworks has been revitalized and repurposed to an Arts and Entertainment Center. The SteelStacks is home to The Sands Casino Bethlehem, ArtsQuest (a community arts program), The Levitt Pavilion (and outdoor concert venue) and for two awesome weeks every summer, Musikfest's Americaplatz and the Sands Steel Stage on PNC Plaza, with features some of the biggest names in music today.
Standing watch over all this activity is the old blast furnace, left intact and providing a unique backdrop. Beautiful rusting steal during the day and lit up at night for a dramatic effect. There are still crumbling buildings and broken out factory windows, as there is much more planned for the site, but it all lends to some very interesting photography. Here are some photos I took of the campus and the rails that run behind the site. Enjoy!
