Lancaster, Pennsylvania

Lancaster, a city of about 60,000 people, lies in south central Pennsylvania –- the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch country. A diverse, progressive city, Lancaster’s been called “America’s Refugee Capital.” Home to beautiful architecture and increasing gentrification, I’ve also tried to capture some of the city’s diversity and street life.

Great set! You capture the feel of the Red Rose City nicely. Is that first photo of West Chestnut Street? Also you managed to photograph my now retired German professor from Millersville University haha.

Thanks! Yes, that is West Chestnut - taken a few weeks ago. Funny about your professor. Small world (and small city).

Nice pictures. Lancaster is definitely coming around. It's no longer an agricultural town any more. Although, "progressive" is a relative term; this is a place where activities largely do not exist on Wednesday nights because of prayer services. But there's nothing wrong with that. It's just another page in our nation's diverse culture!

Harrisburg, York and Lancaster were always in the same sentences while I was growing up and while they were similar they had many differences; Lancaster was the last one I would have ever picked to be what it is today but wow has it changed and has become a really neat little place that packs a lot of punch. Great pics!

Lancaster's transformation over the past 15 years has been quite remarkable. With that being said, Harrisburg and York are moving in the right direction as well, but I agree they are a couple of steps behind Lancaster. The renovation and rebrand of the Yorktowne Hotel as a Hilton Tapestry property will hopefully speed up York's resurgence. Harrisburg University's proposed 19 story tower has the potential to do the same for Harrisburg. Ultimately, the health of all three cities is important for the entire region.

Pablo, the stretch of West Chestnut from College Ave to North Arch is perhaps my favorite corridor in the entire city.

Lancaster is the most extremely rare treat on this forum.
