Add to your York, Pa., smarts with these 9 fun interactive quizzes and maps


Industrial art has sprouted from sidewalks around York City. Here’s one: Yellow Farm Cat from the hands of Robert Machovec. Using parts from barns around York County, he used a shovel for the head and a pitchfork for the whiskers. The street art, on North George Street, signals the growing presence of artists in York’s downtown and bridges the craftsmanship from York County industrial and agricultural past with the creativity brought forth in York growing art community.
