Changing Face of America's Newspapers - Philadelphia Inquirer

By chance I ran into the fact that the Iconic Philadelphia Inquirer Building in downtown Philly has been sold and the newspaper itself and its entire staff are moving to one floor of another downtown structure.

It kind of visualizes how the age of computers and the Internet has shrunk the need for bodies and space to deliver a much smaller product - an American newspaper.

The white clad stone eighty year old landmark and space behind it for several blocks is planned to become a hotel and casino.  Ain't that something?

The present American Town Square is perhaps no longer recognizable to an older generation.
