    Hilton - Status??

    Anyone have any updates on the Hilton Cleanup? I'd be curious to see photos of Hilton after the water was pumped out.

    Chris tweeted this article earlier. No pics, but some good info.

    The integrity of the building is still in question,” Malchow said. “That will come in the coming days. That’s put a real road block on assessing the damages.”
    I hope that isn't as ominous as it sounds

    I think that was in reference to the electrical and phone issues and not the actual structure. Hilton is basically just a big conctrete swimming pool. Not sure how water could damager the structure, but I understand the components being a problem.

    No, it's going to collapse.
