Ambassador Cam, #3

Ambassador Hotel, 9/28/2005, 10:05 a.m.

Still slow going at the Ambassador demolition site, which is why we're pacing out our coverage of the hotel's demise. (We've heard from several of you though, and promise to update you more frequently in the coming weeks.)

I'm assuming the lengthy tear down has to do with all of the toxic materials likely found in the asbestos-riffic building. (I heard at the auction earlier this month that several hotel fixtures couldn't be sold because of contamination fears.) As you can see above, the center steeple has been almost completely torn down at this point, and the roof tiles continue to disappear. More to come...

What happened to the space that was the Ambassador Theatre? Where was this on the grounds?

The Ambassador Theatre was located off of the lobby of the hotel. It was gutted a while ago, and I believe that the seats were sold. The theatre is not one of the areas of the hotel that is designated for preservation during the demolition.
