Ghost Towns Within The City

There are some neighborhoods I ride through that seem like ghost towns within the city. For example when I ride downtown on Woodland It's all residential housing until I reach 39th. Then all of a sudden you see some vacant buildings that seem out of place. Normally an area like this has an air of activity, and sound; but here the air is stagnate, and silent. It reminds of the Obi-Wan Kenobi quote from Starwars, "I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out in terror, and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened."
This is the Colonial Theatre, it first opened in 1909. Once people gathered here to share experiences under this marque, now it slowly erodes.
