In 2005, Six Flags amusement park in New Orleans was temporarily closed in advance of hurricane Katrina’s assault on the Gulf Coast. Five years later, it’s still not open for business. The once thriving attraction is now a virtual ghost town. Sad and eerie.
The park is closed not only to the public but to photographers as well. The demise of Six Flags is not a source of pride for the city of New Orleans.

Bill Barol at Boing Boing just posted a piece on the sad fate of Six Flags New Orleans. But the article’s video link has been removed from Youtube. The video below is the one formerly linked to the Boing Boing post. It was shot by photographer Teddy Smith.
Thanks to BB for bringing this story to my attention.
