Fascade, #2 Machine Shop
While walking around the Bethelehem Steel site, I am constantly aware of the layers of access that were in place when the plant was in operation, the company was divided in a multitude of shops for the different trades represented, and you weren\’t allowed to visit other areas of the plant unless it was part of your job to do so. Many of the workers spent their entire lives working in one area of the plant but did not see other areas. Its strange to wander the abandoned site now, transgressing all these old invisible boundries, and to wade through the spaces that were so heavily stratified with union and personal heirarchy.
