If you’re like me, most of your most vivid nightmares take place inside large, vacant buildings.
However, you don’t need to be questionably sane to admit that you’ve long been intrigued by the hulking, vacant City Hall East (aka Atlanta’s old Sears warehouse) sitting nonchalantly along Ponce de Leon Ave across from the old location of the Atlanta Crackers Stadium.
“What the heck is inside that place?”, you might have asked yourself, emerging from Whole Foods with an $8 salad and an Honest Tea. “A small town constructed out of old, unshipped, prefab Sears catalog homes? Millions of unused “& Roebuck” signs? A murderous henchman hoping to chase you down a long, dark, endless corridor?”
Well, wonder no more disturbed and curious types! Creative Loafing’s Scott Henry and Joeff Davis to the rescue!
The two recently received access inside the brick behemoth – before the property is turned into lofts – and documented a small portion of what’s still behind those trillions of windows.
