Pic of the Day: A Deserted Neighborhood

Posted By on Mon, Aug 29, 2011 at 4:30 PM

According to a photographer on Reddit, this deserted and razed neighborhood was once slated to be converted into a new runway for Hopkins. Expansion plans, it turns out, were premature.


Back before 9/11, the City wanted to expand the Airport, so they bought all these nearby houses and tore them down with intents to build another runway. After 9/11, with decreasing air travel, the need just wasn't there so they left it be. No idea what they plan to do with it.

Still creepy.
