: more photos from photographer Sam Horine inside the Hotel this weekend.
"what photographer Sam Horine saw while inside—he tells us, ‘the vibe was depressing—very dark and dusty in the hallways… all the doors had plastic over them to keep out the dust. You could tell that the management had just quit doing anything for the long term residents a long time ago in an effort to encourage them to leave.’ A security guard came along soon after and told him he could only go to the one room that he signed in to visit, and escorted him back there."
