Bidding Adieu to the Playpen: Twisted Metal and Porn

New, 2 comments

We can't get enough of that Playpen Theater demolition porn, so as 2007 draws to a close, let us check in one final time with the once-proud gay porn palace, future hotel extravaganza, and current pile of rubble. The last to check in with the Playpen is Jeremiah's Vanishing New York, which offers the compelling photo above. Jeremiah writes: "In the tangled mess, I recognized a sign that said ROOM, which, if I recall correctly, was the second half of the sign for MALE ROOM, the gay space on the Playpen's second floor. Below, an EXIT sign is visible on the wall. The door opens onto empty space." That empty space represents the hole in our heart. The hole in all our hearts. Farewell, old pervy friend.
