Updated: 11/07/20
"This is a wish for this bridge to be a bridge between time, between place, between class, between race, between "dirty" and clean, between every style and scene, between cultures and diversity, suburbs and inner-city... the city of bridges, these rivers must be crossed..." This quote is painted on the east end of a bridge that connects downtown Harrisburg and Lower Paxton area in The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Under this bridge lies a shadow of neglect and sorrow. Harrisburg has become one of many cities in America to face bankruptcy. During this time, more and more people face losing their homes, businesses, and freedoms.
