World Trade Center Convoy Transport thru Stroudsburg - 04/14/10 12:42 PM
Today, there was a 28 truck convoy passing through Stroudsburg on Rt 80, transporting steel from the World Trade Center back to its manufacturer in Coatesville, PA. Civic leaders there are proposing a new National Iron and Steel Heritage Museum. We walked up from our office to the overpass and watched this proud procession drive through. Each flatbed truck had a piece of the steel, and most had an American flag draped across it, or the trucks themselves had flags displayed. It was really a great sight, yet at the same time, eerie. Below are a couple pictures we snapped from the overpass.

There's no denying the fact that the market has suffered, along with our country's economy, over the past couple of years.Unfortunately, this has created a serious dilemma as many consumers unwittingly base their real estate decisions on national media reports. Those of us in the industry live by the term "all real estate is local," and as a consumer, so should you-otherwise, you run the risk of making an irreversible real estate mistake.The truth, which you won't (0 comments)
