Yes, there’s artwork popping up everywhere around the city of York, Pa. And the art pictured here is appropriately in the Market/Arts District.  Penn Mar Human Services recently assembled the cityscape, left, of the Central Market in York – and posted it in the Central Market in York.  It’s a bit high up and thus can be overlooked. It’s best seen from the market’s balcony. Which reminds me of Jason Plotkin’s photo essay of remote and obscure features of the old markethouse found via: Central Market, as you’ve never seen it. And for those who just want to know more about Central Market in stories and photos, you like this: York’s Central Market sells steak … and sizzle.

I learned about this site  – York College Archives and Special Collections – just last week and have a meeting scheduled there this week.

It’s a well organized home page, complete with a sure-to-be-referenced-often-by-me timelines of York College of Pennsylvania and its predecessors.
