The first building mentioned in the Broadmoor shopping center was a bookstore, The Book Warehouse. It closed a few years back. The futuristic looking shop was actually a Goodwill store until fairly recently.

Apollo

I'm so intrigued by the door in the ground. You should totally go back!

I know exactly where that abandoned white house is. It's less than a block away from my mom's place. I've been wondering about it for a while since Steele isn't the kind of street where a property goes unused for long. I'm sure there are many people in this city who would snatch that house up for a ton of money if someone would kindly throw a "For Sale" sign in the front yard.

Apologies in advance for the nasty link:

OMG you walked IN to the abandoned house? You are amazing yet insane.

Also, please blow up and frame that door picture. It's really great.

Becky

When you said "buffet" and "broadmore shopping center" I thought for sure you would have pictures of the abandoned Panchos! I haven't passed by there in a while, maybe something else is in it...

cokane

Brad, I was thinking that motto sounded Goodwillish!

Apollo, that might be the end of me if I went back to the door in the ground. Maybe I should send Addie through & see what happens.

Jules, I just took those photos through the windows.

Becky, follow the link int this post to the previous Broadmoore post, I believe there's at least one photos of Panchos.

Vanessa

Hey, the building you thought was a clothing store is an old Goodwill. I know what most of the buildings were used for.

Vanessa

The old Panchos is still abandoned. Their supposed to come back in 2010

TF

My poor hometown! I remember when all these buildings were occupied with thriving businesses. I'm glad I live on the other side of the world now, I couldn't stand seeing this decay in Baton Rouge.
