Trenton Council Office
The Broad Street Bank
George Washington Council

This is a huge building on East State Street, that appears to be mostly boarded up and unused. The Council office was down one level from the sidewalk, along East State Street. The building appears to be in the process of renovation. The red strip along the side of the building is actually canvas used to protect pedestians walked near the building.
State Street is in the direction that the pickup truck is traveling. We are looking mostly at the side along Montgomery Street. It was quite difficult to find a good angle for shooting the picture.
When Rosemary and I first came to the Trenton area, this was a very busy section of the city. There were shops, restaraunts, movies. We would come to Trenton every Thursday to do our shopping. How the city has changed - sad.
