It stretched about a mile along the lehigh river, and there was a jogging trail on the other side. Amazing! It looked like something off a Pink Floyd album cover. It had its own fire department, two or three zip codes...kind of boggles the mind now.
Anyway, yeah it's been shut down for 20 years now and actually Sands Las Vegas is looking into buying it and turning it into a casino!
WOW it's definately a small world.... I remember looking out of my apartment window and seeing that same thing since I also went to Lehigh as an undergrad (graduated in '95). Actually Bethlehem steel owned a 7mile tract of land there... Really mind blowing.
Didn't hear about the casino though..
