Demolition is continuing on the charming old Downtown YMCA building, which is nestled among modern skyscrapers.
The insides are being exposed now -- empty rooms, wall signs, even the scoreboard for the basketball court.
It can all get pretty creepy-looking, as these pictures show.
That penthouse doesn't look too safe.
The scoreboard holds on for its waning moments.
Out of place among the sleek modern giants.
Maybe if the Y had a pointless open circle on its roof it would have been saved.
The Exxon building, on the right, is also being abandoned but is expected to survive.
