Pull (at least) three cards and use them to… write about either a real or fictional abandoned building.
Loew’s 175th Street Theatre – Manhattan – 1969
He was once a pillar of the community (La Force) where people came together and socialize. A beacon of light to all that shined brightly on even the darkest of nights (Le Judgement).
Disrepair came upon him as less and less people came to visit and upkeep decreased, allowing deterioration to sneak in.
Then one day the lights shut down and the doors were barred. Seats were left to gather dust that had once gathered rumps of rapt men and women and children. (L’ermite)
Many people felt they no longer needed the hope that he represented (Le Fou), while others found other ways to entertain, uplift, and educate themselves (Le Faucheur and Le Bateleur).
Now what had once stood tall crumbles (la Maison Dieu) with neglect in an uncertain world (La Lune).
And yet still, he his hopeful (Les Etoiles) that in time a new purpose will come (Le Pendu and Wheel of Fortune) and people will return once more (Le Monde).
