It was once so beautiful...its so sad now.
Why do people let this happen? This is still beautiful in my eyes. As long as someone appriciates it

Wow! Wouldn't it be neat to blink one's eyes and see the dancers and hear the music again? Think of all the souls that danced, laughed, smiled there. I bet there are some ghosts there!

I was thinking about ghosts, too :)

The photo is very suggestive and that looks like an awesome place.

It would be beautiful if they restored this ballroom to the public. :)

Great capture by the way! :D

thank you! there have been plans to restore it, but they all failed because the buildings have landmark status and that makes it much more expensive :(

I can hear the music in the background ... this is very nice. I developed some interest in urban decay and old buildings after seeing some great work on Flickr. While I have tried some HDR, I have yet to go visit a site like this. You have a great eye for art and reworking them to get the right mood.
