Sheraton Hotel 2000-2014

Gary, Indiana

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.gary-downtown-garystyle

Looming over the view south down Broadway from 4th Avenue. Probably 2005. Fourth and Broadway - 2005

Panorama from (future) Hatcher Plaza to contextualize the hotel’s location in downtown Gary. I think I took this last year (2013).

Brutal backdrop for the Elbert Gary statue in front of City Hall. 2006 or 2007, I think.Elbert Gary Statue

Looming over City Hall. Ditto.City Hall and former Sheraton Hotel

View from within the pedestrian skyway over Broadway. 2013.
