Olongapo was dubbed “sin city” in the past especially during the time of the giant U.S. Naval Base. It has a nightlife even until now although not as active as when the U.S. Facility was here and when Magsaysay Drive and portions of Gordon and Rizal Avenues could be observed teeming with U.S. service members on liberty.
Many Olongapo residents, natives and transients alike, have left the City especially after the Mount Pinatubo eruption and the American Bases' pullout. Many of them, I believe, would like to see images of the City again. This blog post is for them.
