Sterling news

OK, first off a big thank you to Jim Ryan and Cathy Macko Payne for quickly and efficiently getting me some info that I "right to know"ed.

Now to the meat of the post. Pictures of the inside of the Sterling Hotel.
First floor

The 'Marble columns' aren't real Marble. They are deteriorated steel beams with a fake Marble coating.

Second Floor

And the roof that was repaired.

The 'repairs' seem to be several dozen 4 X 4's to buttress the badly rotted roof with some tar paper and cheap rolled roofing.

And I'm told, this huge hole wasn't even touched.

Anyone notice the date on the bottom right of the pictures? That's right. A full month before the flood. And Cityvest thought we wouldn't notice?
Yeah, the 'flood' destroyed the Sterling...... More like GREED did.
What does $6 million buy you in the county?

I literally have HUNDREDS of pictures to go through. So more to come.

  1. I imagine that a lot of folks that wanted to see the Sterling saved, had no real idea as to the real condition of the interior, and how badly it had been ignored. Maybe.....if corrective measures had been incorporated at the onset, maybe....it might have had a chance?? I guess once the "cow dies" and there is no more free milk, you just let it rot?? Good presentation Dan, Thanks..
