Great Old Photograph Shows Oneonta Urban Renewal in Action
A listener sent me this photograph over a year ago. I like to revisit it once in a while because it is so great. I don't know the year, but I am sure locals can figure it out by some of the old businesses shown. As you can see the downtown urban renewal project is well under way.
I have two thoughts whenever I see this picture: the first is what in heck did this look like when it rained hard? What a mess! And second.....how did any of the downtown businesses survive this disruption?
Were you around Oneonta when this was going on?
