Galveston's Flagship Hotel, coming down slowly
The musty old Flagship Hotel, the famous building on a Galveston pier, is a lot more airy than it used to be.

Crews are in the process of taking down the edifice in order to build Tilman Fertitta's Kemah Boardwalk-like "Pleasure Pier" in its place.

You just can't implode something that's out over the bay, so workers have been carefully taking down walls a floor at a time, leaving the above look to the place.

Nets keep debris from hitting the water.

It'd probably be a pretty cool place to explore and hang out in on a clear night, but there is security preventing it.
