The Pennsylvania Turnpike

Across the pond there is another city with a majestic skyline and beautiful architecture. Uniontown. The city of Uniontown was founded before Bon and had it's population boost Way before Uniontown became overshadowed by Bon. The buildings are older, the architecture has that 30's feel, and the folks are quite nicer.

In the 1970's when Interstate 21 was being built through Uniontown, three blocks had to be demolished at the intersection we are looking at, and over 6 other blocks had to be destroyed to build the highway. Like Bon, Uniontown's downtown is separated from the rest of the city by interstate 21.

The magnificent city of Bon! The architecture here is the best around. Today we will be looking at Downtown Bon.

51 8th street ois the second tallest building in the city and is an airplane's best friend at night acting as a lighthouse for the air.

Unlike Englewood, Bon's downtown was planned out. This allowed for a 6 lane highway to pass through the city with ease. Interstate 21 separates Downtown from the CBD.

This also allowed space along the river to be spared for park purposes. But later, two stadiums were built.

The Harry Hess bridge, named in honor of Bon's first mayor, connects Bon with the twin city of Uniontown.

The packle tunnel also connects downtown Bon with Downtown Uniontown, which we will see in the next update.
