HARRISBURG, Pa. —  The Bertolino Building at North Seventh and Reily Streets was imploded around 9am Sunday morning, making room for a new parking lot.  The Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency bought the property back in September to build a 219 space parking lot for the agency’s employees.  North Seventh Street between Clinton and Herr Streets was shut down to traffic for a half hour before and after the demolition.
