The Statler Hotel from Bagley

Great expense was made to cover the windows of the Statler Hotel long after it closed its doors.


Statler Hotel

When the People Mover was activated in the 1980's the gaunt broken windows of the many abandoned buildings along its route presented an image problem for the city fathers.

In a move befitting Hollywood, windows eye level to the train were covered and neatly painted.  In the case of  the Statler Hotel awnings were added to shield the view of the lower windows.
