Why Not the Old Ametek Site?

During the past year there has been more than one occasion where I have read articles and have seen renderings of what the former NVF plant in Yorklyn will become. I think it is great what the State of Delaware can do with an old polluted site. Even the highly polluted Wilmington Waterfront was cleaned up and developed. In the articles about Yorklyn, we read how there will be public access the Red Clay Creek, the creation of walking and bike trails, storm water mitigation to go along with the history about the area and site. The connection to the Marshall Estate will also be a plus. We also read about the millions of dollars that will have to be pumped into this site to make this all happen.

A Porch in The Cedars

I hope the owners don't mind me taking a photo of their porch in the Cedars.
It was to inviting to walk away from.

An Early Celebration in Marshallton

This appears to be a celebration of some sort as a band prepares on Stanton Road, in front of the Marshallton Methodist Church. Folks have lined Greenbank Road, in the background,  in preparation of what looks like a procession or parade.
