Tune in to see Pennsylvania’s changing spaces

  • Marie Cusick

Pennsylvania’s rich natural resources and attractive river system have made it a hub of industry since its founding in the 1600’s. These industries’ boom-and-bust cycles spurred rapid growth in cities, then just as quickly left those spaces behind.

The Keystone Crossroads: Changing Spaces TV special explores communities reinventing themselves, using historic legacies or tapping new resources to stay relevant in the 21st century.

StateImpact Pennsylvania partnered with Keystone Crossroads to look at how the Marcellus Shale gas industry has affected housing in Williamsport. Tune in to see the full episode on WITF-TV Thursday, November 12 at 8:00pm.

Cities featured in this episode:

  • Williamsport

The program repeats on WITF-TV Sunday, November 15 at 6:00pm.  It airs on WQLN-TV in Erie November 19 at 7:30 p.m. Check your local listings to find it on other PBS stations throughout the state.
