    ... on what was once "Main Street", Knobbsville. There's a church, a "Quality Appliance" store that now just has some abandoned couches in front... a house that looks like a junkyard, with junked cars, a trailer and a dozen ancient ride mowers... then a house with stickers that read things like "Prayer is a good way to meet God... tresspassing is faster" Ah...

    ... or South Asian), my guess is that many of the worshippers at this mosque will be doctors and professionals. Turns out, Hollidaysburg not only has a beautiful, charming downtown--everything I'd been hoping for from Altoona--but it's actually the county seat! Glad I didn't pass it up.
