From NYTimes.com: Landmark Hotel Among Sites Seen as in Peril
When it opened in 1956, the Statler Hilton Hotel in Dallas was a marvel of modern architecture, its size a tribute to imagination and a booming economy. Now it stands empty, another white elephant on the American landscape.
On Tuesday, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, a private nonprofit organization, will announce that the Statler Hilton and 10 other sites have made its 2008 list of the country’s most endangered historic places.
I saw this hotel the last time I was in Dallas and I wondered what the building was. The building sits like the remains of a building swept by apocalyptic disease.
Here are some pretty amazing photos of this building.
