Surely, this is York County, Pa., at its best. The community came together for a New Year’s celebration at Central Market. For years, the market’s hours were limited to market day. Now, this gathering place serves as such on other days – and nights. In its early years, 125-plus years ago, it served as a place for conventions and religious services and more. So the recent use of the market house for celebrations – coming together moments – such as this one represents change for the better. This photo, by the YDR’s Jason Plotkin, has served as the cover photo for the York Daily Record’s Facebook page since New Year’s. We realize we posted a ‘York County at its best’ photo in the last YorkTownSquare post. And we might have one next post. When we run across photos that say a lot about York County’s goodness, you’ll find them on this blog.
This is just a good picture. Emigsville looking down on High and St. Mark streets in December 2013. It comes from the camera of the York, Pa., Daily Record’s Paul Kuehnel, who lives in this Manchester Township neighborhood. This scene provides the top piece for The Emigsville Heritage Project, a community website that Paul has operated with since 2006. It features some wonderful Kuehnel photogs from around town.
