Goodbye To The 'Joe'

05/16/2019 at 10:55am EDT

from Brian Manzullo of the Detroit Free Press,

Though it's time for Joe Louis Arena to go, you can't help but feel sad as you watch the demolition process unfold.

Thanks to Detroit Red Wings photographer Dave Reginek, we now have a new look inside the Joe as demolition work continues inside the arena.

Reginek posted a variety of photos on his Facebook and Instagram pages Wednesday, including a 360-degree look from where center ice used to be.

The ice is gone, of course. Though most of the beams are still up, the lower bowl is now piles of rubble. The views, especially from the concourse, are somewhat jarring, especially for those with fond memories of going to Red Wings games over the years.

continue for the pictures...

update 11:30am, the pics in the article have been removed, so basically not much reason to visit the link.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
