Demolition crews tearing down Ribbon Works buildings
A one-time silk mill is coming down in Allentown.
Demolition crews on Wednesday began knocking down a handful of buildings known as the Ribbon Works in the 300 block of Front Street.
The property was once home to the Weilbacher Silk Mill. Officials said the vacant buildings have fallen into disrepair over the years and pose a safety hazard.
