Que de souvenirs retrouvés grâce aux photos malgré l'état.
J'ai connu le home et son évolution, la nouvelle aile avec la grande salle de sport qui servait pour les soirées et divers spectacles.
Bien triste de voir disparaître ce bâtiment.

Enter Grounds

Hey guys, I have tried to go here before and I was immediately stopped by security because I went in by where the security is in the building that's being used. I have seen comments that say to enter through the woods from the Home Depot lot, but from there where do I go? I would really appreciate anyone helping me get in! I love exploring abandoned places and really want to take some pictures with my friend. Please let me know!! Thank you so much

Goldblatt's underground tunnel

Melissa. Goldblatts had a store on Broadway, and Massachusetts. The Broadway store had 2 or 3 subbasements. The Massachuetts store had 1 or 2 subbasements. And shoppers could go from one store to the other under the alley, via the underground tunnel.

Goldblatt's underground tunnel

Melissa. I can help you out. Goldblatt's had stores on Broadway and Massachusetts. You could go from one to the other, by going into the basements of either building. Which ran under the alley. It was really neat. If memory serves correctly the building on Broadway had two or three basements. All filled with goods. While the building on Massachusetts only had one basement.also filled with goods.

Goldblatt's was a major big time down town department store in Gary back in the 50's and 60's and earlier. They had everything as I remember it from my childhood. I'm not sure about the tunnel but I think it may have been a pedestrian tunnel from their parking lot to their building .Hope this helps a little.
