520 5TH ST Catasauqua, PA 18032

Another one I know I've featured on here before. This place must have been AMAZING in her time.
I just hope someone doesn't roll in, purchase her and strip her of all that makes her beautiful and unique.
I'm hoping that the current photos I found mean she's under some sort of construction?
This place would make the coolest damn Boutique Hotel EVER...
