Where you will have to live if you are bad

…is the Breezewood MOTEL in Breezewood, Pennsylvania. An amazing location for photographers and people who like to live in motels:
…Breezewood continues to meet its claim of “Town of Motels” as well. It has long-offered many hundreds of hotel and motel rooms, in a wide variety of price ranges. According to a 1990 New York Times article, Breezewood offered “no less than 10 motels, 14 fast-food restaurants and 7 fuel and service stations, including two sprawling truck stops.”

Business Week stated in 1991, Breezewood is “perhaps the purest example yet devised of the great American tourist trap…the Las Vegas of roadside strips, a blaze of neon in the middle of nowhere, a polyp on the nation’s interstate highway system.” (Wikipedia)

I saw this MOTEL across the street from a gas station and ran over to snap a quick pic. When I turned around and headed back to the car, I heard jeers coming from the hotel dwellers, apparently not excited about having their picture taken. I didn’t see any people around… otherwise I probably wouldn’t have snapped it. I was hoping I’d see some tiny angry Pennsylvanians in the picture when it was developed… but unfortunately no.
