What's going on, Albuquerque?
The Desert Sands -still renting out rooms on Central near San Mateo.
As a Resource Teacher with the APS Title I Homeless Project, I have worked with my share of families living temporarily in this motel. It can be pretty rough, but must be better than sleeping on the streets. Since many of these motels along Central have been bulldozed, homeless folks have been forced to spread out throughout the city more than they did in the past.
The following from a website about movie locations.
No Countyry For Old Men:
Hunter Llewelyn Moss (Josh Brolin) finds $2 million of drug money near the Rio Grande and, hoping to keep it for himself, goes on the run, staying in one rundown motel after another. It seems he may be too crafty for the diabolical hit man Anton Chigurh (Javier Bardem) and the group of Mexican criminals tracking him. Unfortunately, he gets preoccupied by a poolside betty and beer at the Desert Sands Hotel in El Paso and doesn't see them coming; it's a fatal mistake.Moss' last stand was actually shot at the Desert Sands Hotel in Albuquerque. The Coens added "El Paso" to the sign to fit in with the story line. Cinematographer Roger Deakins told the Daily Telegraph that the key to the film's tone is its realism: "Very edgy and dark, and quite sparse. Not so stylized." The Desert Sands is certainly the real deal.
Thank you both for the info. It is a very interesting building. Dee
This is also home to one of the best Vietnamese restaurants in town: Pho Linh.
