Divine Lorraine Is One of Google Street View’s Scariest Places


hall9The Daily Dot names North Broad’s Divine Lorraine—beautiful but abandoned—as one of its 10 scariest places on Google Street View. “Smack in the middle of downtown Philadelphia’s busy Broad Street sits the towering Divine Lorraine. When night falls and the rest of the city’s skyscrapers are illuminated, the former hotel and religious compound remains forebodingly dark and lifeless. Like Philadelphia wasn’t scary enough.”

Also terrifying? Somebody got paid to write that lazy cheap shot at Philadelphia.
