A view of a View from 7 stories up

Your Ad Here I was exploring the casinos parking garage this morning. It's looks to have been closed for quiet a while. From looking at its dips and buckles in the floors, I think I know why. It probably suffered major structural damage during Katrina or some other storm. By the look of it, it hasn’t been used in years. I wouldn't want to park my car in here.

You can see part of the garage out the Views window… on the left.

The security guy said they only use it for special occasions and big events. I think he’s telling stories.

Oddly enough, they leave the lights on 24/7/365. They must waste a small fortune on the light bill for this garage. There’s gotta be 100 lights on throughout the structure. I imagine once these remaining bulbs finally blow, the garage will go dark for good.

Structural damage on the 7th floor? Maybe the pieces are suppose to fit this loose? I don’t know for sure.

Great views from the top. You can see the Winnebago View in the bottom right. It’s the 2nd smallest RV in the lot. There's a little 1980's Toyota there too.

Free water?! Nope.


  1. Yikes, looks unsafe to me. I bet it was from Katrina. Maybe leaving the lights on is a safety factor? I bet you could hear those copters overhead.

  2. If that wasn't from a storm, then the GC on that garage must have been an idiot!! Was it closed to the public?? I wouldn't even park a bicycle in that thing!!

  3. I could hear the helicopters for sure. I think they were military.

    John - I would have to plead the 5th on your question... "was it open to the public".

    I think they're just leaving it there as/is becaise it's cheaper than paying to demo it. I don't think it can be used again given its condition.
