Seven views of the New Albany Riverfront Amphitheater's deteriorating observation deck.








Thanks to N for the photos. This strange structure, which looks somewhat like a coastal defense facility from the Spanish-American War, is dilapidated even by the standards of the amphitheater itself (apart from the new canary yellow roof dating to England III).

Will anything ever be done to improve and actually utilize the amphitheater? It seems highly unlikely in the sort term, and it's a huge waste of potential.

I know why you removed the comment, but I think it's spot on. Just saying.

Does Jeff Gahan have plaque envy?

Folks forget the canary yellow canopy was paid for by the Southern Indiana Convention and Visitor's Bureau…

after the city promised it would be used for an on-going, annual series of summer concerts and riverside events.

Good point. And it wasn't cheap.
