Statler Hilton Hotel an endangered historic place

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.
