It is the end of an era today at the famed Philadelphia Spectrum. Demolition crews are breaking up the ice for the final time. The Flyers and Phantoms won championships on the ice.

The word is that the water will be used inside some sort of souvenirs - possibly ice coasters.

The Spectrum will be demolished in the fall.

The site will become Philly Live - a retail, restaurant, and entertainment district.
