During a recent trip back to The Pines, I was dismayed to see how vandals were destroying the lobby. Apparently, people are trying to steal the marble that lines the walls.
It was a cold rainy day and there were big puddles of water in the lobby floor from the damaged skylight overhead. You can see in the first few photos where moss is growing. Upstairs in some of the rooms there was ice from where water had leaked from the ceiling.
Last time we were here, the building down the street was a pile of rubble. That has been cleaned up, but now there are orange barrels around the building across the street . Further down, the street is still closed off from when a part of a building collapsed.
I’m sure it’s only a matter of time, before The Pines is surrounded in orange Barrels.
