Abandoned Eastern Pennsylvania (Virtual)

January 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Have you ever peeked through a shutter and wondered about the mysteries hidden within an abandoned property?  Journey through some of Eastern Pennsylvania’s ruins and discover an evocative new way to look at history and long-neglected sites – prisons, asylums, theaters, mills, cemeteries and more.  Discover a surreal world that development has left behind, where industry collapsed, or culture changed, and decay took over.

About the Speaker: Cindy Vasko was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and resides in Arlington, Virginia, near Washington, D.C. For fifteen years, Cindy was the publications manager for a large construction law firm in Northern Virginia, and concurrently, for four years interviewed musicians, wrote articles, and photographed concerts for a music magazine. Cindy is an award-winning photographer, and her works were featured in many gallery exhibitions, including galleries in New York City; Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; and Paris, France.
