Love the Bliss Building, but wish they had not stuccoed over the brick.

a great street corner.

Upstairs they filmed some scenes for the movie The Flock. It was supposed to be an old hotel, which it was in the old days. I went up the stairs (entrance behind the blue pole in the picture) when the paint crew was working there. Quite a few smallish rooms, with a sink, unfinished wooden floors. Slightly creepy.

I always had breakfast at Lindy's when I was in town as a tourist, but once I lived in ABQ, I never did.

Thank you for the all the info The upstairs sounds like a treat, a creepy treat, but a treat. I never saw the building pre-stucco. They've torn out the old booths inside so it looks more cafe-ish rather than old time. I guess those booths were pretty squashed down from years of bottoms! D
