To Maria: I want to take exception to your comment that "most buildings in the city of Wilkes-Barre are abandoned" That certainly is not the case. While it is true that many buildings in W-B are abandoned, stating "most" is a bit much. The fact that the Sterling stands at one of the most visible sites - the entry to the city - is a sad welcome. Rather like an unarmed sentinel guarding the portal. Beautiful in its day, it is coming to an end as plans have been made for razing the Sterling.
Sadly, the decay had begun before the tenants were summarily evicted, however, at that point, repairs were not out of the question. No foresight.
