Scenes from McKeesport: The Disappearing Mill Town Vernacular

This is a collection of four years worth of photographs documenting the crumbling historic buildings of McKeesport, where I live. I created this video with the goal of educating people about the historic architecture of McKeesport, and encouraging preservation of these structures.

*NOTE: This video does not cover the more stable, newer sections of McKeesport on the periphery of the city. This video is about the oldest and most historically significant sections of the city, which are threatened by long-term neglect and demolition.

Music by: Sufjan Stevens ("Redford") and Coldplay ("The Scientist").
