abandoned hotel NW Indiana
< on 2/7/2014 3:49 AM >
Posted on Forum: UER Forum
 
An abandoned 14-story eye sore stands directly across the street from the city hall and court building in a NW Indiana city known for its steel production. You will probably have an extremely hard time guessing which city this abandoned hotel is located in. It's Ok...if you look at some of the photos there are some subtle clues.

Four different mayors have tried desperately to rehabilitate the building and/or have it torn down. The current mayor of the city tried to get the hotel imploded for free and have its implosion be used in a Hollywood movie. They gutted the place for asbestos and removed almost all of it (which is why there are only bare walls where the rooms were).

I threw in some photos of the train station for the hell of it. 1.

I must get back to Gary.


When I say I'm 'clean and sober', it means I've showered and I'm headed to the liquor store.

I love how the grass is growing in the swimming pool. That's a really cool picture.

Once again, it looks like a nice find. Seeing that you have done a lot of exploring in Gary, did you have any problems while you were there?

I've done a lot of exploring in Gary. I live about forty minutes away. I've been there 20 times. I got my car broken into once. It was my fault for parking it in the middle of nowhere instead of where other cars were parked.

Detail from the pool graffiti



Dilapidated- I've been going into Gary since '08. Never had an issue and I've met some really nice people there.


orgullo gringo- I'm starting to wonder if we've met before! Have you been to the Settlement House?

I've never actually been to the hotel, driven by it enough times though. I heard it wasn't really worth it due to how torn up it is. It's nice to see some interior shots though. I like the shot of the overgrown swimming pool.

It's fun for the climbing wall and the view. It's also a very easy squat.

This hotel is one of Gary's best attractions! Many reasons including:

Radio Tower on the Roof


View of city hall


Abandoned Skyway


Awesome looking bar


and of course the climb-ability of the exterior walls (I do regret the miss-use of blur on this photo!)

Oooh I would like so much to get out to Gary. We were thinking of breezing through at least for a quick look on our way back from the xmas trip to Detroit but we ran out of time and light. Summer, hopefully! I love the photos. And yeah, that shot of the grassy swimming pool is just great. But many of the other large spaces in the hotel... very well captured, you really managed to frame a lot of what the place used to be, to me. The scale of things.
