With the end in site for the former 14-story downtown hotel I thought I’d share some images made over the past decade and a half.
Advertising the Miss USA pageant and Gary Steelheads basketball. 2000 or 2001.
Looming over the view south down Broadway from 4th Avenue. Probably 2005.
Panorama from (future) Hatcher Plaza to contextualize the hotel’s location in downtown Gary. I think I took this last year (2013).
Creating a downtown canyon. 2007.
Brutal backdrop for the Elbert Gary statue in front of City Hall. 2006 or 2007, I think.
Looming over City Hall. Ditto.
View from within the pedestrian skyway over Broadway. 2013.
Last use: Displaying a community development scheme banner. 2013.
From Gateway Park. 2013, or maybe 2014.
Some history of the building.
