Searching for Dream Street - Ambridge
A lot stands empty between closed businesses on Ambridge's main shopping street.
As with other towns, Ambridge was hit hard when American Bridge Company ended operations 1983 and from the decline of the mills such as the Babcock & Wilcox Co.
Ambridge is one of the few communities that has been able to exit the state Act 47 program for distressed communities.
Although it is making a comeback, many of the storefronts in the shopping district are still boarded up.
