St. Nicholas Breaker — Mahanoy City, Pennsylvania

Before its demolition: The St. Nicholas Breaker was constructed using 3,800 cubic yards of steel and 10,000 cubic yards of concrete. It contained 1.5 miles (2.4 km) of conveyor lines, 20 miles (32 km) of pipes, 25 miles (40 km) of conduits, 118 miles (190 km) of wire, and 26,241 square feet (2,437.9 m2) of rubber belting. The construction required half of the village of Suffolk to be relocated.
