For all the good kids who never tried to sneak into Philadelphia’s beautifully creepy landmark the Divine Lorraine Hotel, you’re in luck.

Hadas Kuznits of KYW Newsradio and developer Eric Blumenfeld took a trip inside the hotel and Kuznits posted multiple videos of the experiential interview to YouTube offering a fairly detailed look at the hotel and Blumenfeld’s plans for the site.

Blumenfeld bought the Divine Lorraine for a second time in 2012 and revealed his visions for the historic urban ruins which include a salon, a men’s boutique, and a couple of restaurants.

The videos give a pretty good idea of what the now gutted Divine Lorraine looks like with close-up shots of the detailed, original alabaster steps that Blumenfeld remarks should be in a museum, and, of course, incomparable shots of the Philadelphia skyline from just outside the sky-rise plagued Center City area. See that view and more in the videos below.
