The Legend of Gravity Hill: A tale of two videos

From time to time, I keep tabs on this old video of me, a 20-year-old intern at the Patriot-News in Harrisburg.

It was filmed in the summer of 2008 by photographer Michael Fernandez.

It was my father who told me about the infamous hill in Lewisberry, a town in the northern part of York County near Harrisburg where the coverage areas of the York Daily Record and Patriot-News technically overlap.

Flash forward to 2011.

I’m working at the York Daily Record and discover this local legend, where cars seemingly roll backwards up the incline, has not been written about by my colleagues.

Of course, I HAD to double dip with the on-camera opportunity. When I went back a few months ago with photographer Kate Penn, it was yucky and raining.

Did I milk this ridiculous story for all it was worth?

You betcha.

And it’s cracking me up on a Saturday afternoon watching them side-by-side.
