World's Fair Relics In Danger

World's Fair Light at Penn Hills ResortBeing located outside of Philadelphia, some of the first scouting trips for our World's Fair documentary were here in PA. We visited the Penn Hills Resort in the Poconos, home to about 30 of the multi-colored square streetlights from the fair. The resort closed in April 2009. Now though, the property is up for tax sale in the fall, and there have been multiple vandalism cases at the site. No one seems to be able to contact the owners. 

Here's the full story from the Pocono Record.


Any ideas to help save these lights before they are vandalized, or bulldozed by the new owners in the fall?
