Highland Park Police Station – 1917 – 2012

The historic Highland Park Police Station in Highland Park, just off of Woodward Avenue, came down by building eater on Tuesday of this week. An article about the demolition can be found here: http://www.mlive.com/news/detroit/index.ssf/2012/01/photos_crew_demolishing_histor.html

My pictures were shot back in 2003, over the last 9 years, the building has become vandalized, and looted and open to the elements. I love the old “Fallout Shelter” sign to the right of the door.

The building was in shambles 9 years ago, crumbling in front of our eyes, and now it’s gone. Highland Park is an amazing boom to bust story.

It’s a shame that this once important building bit the dust, on a positive note a new Fire Station is supposed to take its place.

Take a trip insdide the station here: http://www.detroiturbex.com/content/healthandsafety/hppolice/hppolice.html

An interesting overview of Highland Park from a few years ago…

Have a good weekend everyone! See you back here Monday.
