The iconic Hard Rock Hotel in NOLA has posed some serious safety issues with an accidental collapse back in October. Now it will collapse, but on purpose. It's sad to see a Canal St. staple go, but it would be pretty cool to watch it get demolished from the inside out. You can watch the New Orleans Hard Rock implosion next month from surrounding rooftops.\nOn Oct. 12, The Hardrock Hotel in The French Quarter collapsed while under construction, killing two people and causing one to go missing. The cause of the incident remains a mystery but investigation is still underway.\nThe building is permanently damaged, so an implosion will take place early next year to demolish the 18-story building for good. The cranes used for construction were partially imploded on Oct. 20 and that in itself drew a crowd of speculators that filled up Canal St. and Bourbon St.\nThe implosion is tentatively set to take place on Jan. 13 but that is subject to change. Narcity will follow the story and provide updates when further details are released. Get your binoculars ready because there are surrounding rooftops that will give you a close-up view of the implosion.\nAlthough The Ritz Carlton and The Saint Hotel are super close to the Hard Rock, they are likely going to be closed for safety reasons.\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by Del James (@deljamesgang) on Oct 26, 2019 at 10:55am PDT\nFor precaution, you can see the collapse from a bit further out while still getting a good view. Vue and Monkey Board are two super cool rooftop bars nearby, so this really can be turned into one big viewing party.*\nView this post on Instagram A post shared by Joaquin Mota Vargas (@joaco_mota) on Oct 30, 2019 at 6:02pm PDT\nAnother ritzy hotel good for panoramic views of the implosion is the Sheraton on Canal St. Head up to the rooftop of the 47-floor luxury space for an overhead view. The Unipark Garage on the corner of Roosevelt Way and Common St. offers a view from the rooftop as well.\nWho knows what will take it's place, but all we can say is: Hard Rock, you and your 24k gold burgers, will be missed dearly.\nView this post on Instagram French Quarter Fest is kicking off with a parade in just minutes!

In opposition to tearing something down, the newly-built NOLA airport is another great sight for sore eyes.\nThere are stories everywhere!
