Jon Konrath passes along a link to the Google Maps satellite view of the Breaking Away quarry and the nearby complex of quarries. The linked review is a must-read, by the way. I thought it was interesting that he located it by searching for “Empire Mill Road,” as it was a staple of Bloomington folklore that Bloomington limestone is the stone used in the construction of the Empire State Building. I wonder, could these be the quarries that stone came from?

I have many memories of stumbling along a narrow path through the woods on our way to these quarries, the cleared areas of stone glimmering bluely in the cool light of a full summer moon.
