Watch Your Step: A Tour of Four of Downtown Dallas's Icky Vacancies

Courtesy the City of Dallas

So, wait, you're saying the Statler Hilton's abandoned? Hardly.

Piggybacking on our streetside coverage from yesterday, in which Mayor Tom unveiled his recipe for protectingrebuilding downtown's vacant buildings, we'd like to invite you on a journey deep into the heart of ... the old Statler Hilton Hotel and three other choice properties.

Here's the slide show. It's a little like swimming around a shipwreck, only moldier. And with more dessicated rats and pigeons. --Patrick Michels
