Bathed in a tremendous amount of sodium vapor light, the long-abandoned Municipal Incinerator sits decaying on 60th Street in Galveston, Texas.
These types of incinerators have posed an interesting problem for the municipalities that built them back in the day. When EPA regulation changes forced the closure of incinerators like this one and the one at Echo Lake in Fort Worth, the cities were left with very large, unique and expensive-to-demolish structures that could no longer be used for the purpose for which they were built, and because of their unique designs, were completely unsuitable for virtually any other use. There was supposedly a plan several years ago to re-purpose the Echo lake facility as, of all things, a dinner theater, but not surprisingly, that never materialized.
