Did Anthony Bourdain Light Up These Abandoned Detroit Hotels?

New, 31 comments

A tipster sent us these cool photos depicting the Eddystone and Park Avenue Hotels. According to said tipster, the light show was courtesy of Anthony Bourdain, whose TV show Parts Unknown has been shooting in Detroit over the past week. These photos were taken last night, as the buildings were illuminated for about half an hour. What might Bourdain want with two abandoned hotels destined for the garbage heap? Perhaps he's making a point about classic Detroit being demolished to make way for an arena built on cheap pizza. Or maybe he just wanted to drive a flashy car in front of an especially gritty backdrop.
