Does downtown Harrisburg really need its own article?[edit]

I understand that it's the state capital, but the downtown isn't that noteworthy other than containing the capitol building. Maybe this should be merged with the Harrisburg, PA article. We can't make an article for the downtown of every small town in Pennsylvania, we'd also have to include other small towns with moderately built up downtowns such as Johnstown, Altoona, Wilkes-Barre, Indiana, and others of similar size. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 72.72.252.106 (talk) 23:04, 1 April 2007 (UTC).

I disagree. There's no reason why not to create an article for every "small town" city in Pennsylvania like Altoona, Johnstown, Harrisburg, etc. I've already created a downtown Altoona article. But I'm unsure if a lot of buildings in downtown Harrisburg deserve their own article. I'm sure I could write an article on a lot of downtown Altoona buildings.
