I'm sure there's an interesting story behind the building, but what exactly is it? Everyday when I'm driving home from work I pass an abandoned building that's located a little before the Shoprite in Lagrangeville off of 82. One thing that's always stood out to me is that it's the perfect location for a small business to go into and thrive. More specifically, it's off of a pretty busy road, right near the entrance for the Taconic State Parkway and near a residential area. However, for as long as I've seen it it's been abandoned and the condition of the structure just seems to be getting worse.

A closer look at the abandoned building:

There's graffiti all along the front of the structure and paint is on the windows making it very hard to see. I was looking at the top and you see a sign was up there at some point, but it's very hard to make out what it said. Besides all of that, it's a cute size and has great potential.

Parking and a view:

The parking lot for the structure is a pretty good size and there is a ton of grass around it that provides open space. It's hard to believe that nothing has gone in here in a while and it makes you wonder what businesses have tried to make it in this location.

Ideas for what's been in here:

I have a few guess on what's been here and what it could be used for in the future:

  • a florist shop
  • a small clothing boutique
  • an ice cream parlor

If you know the history behind the structure or what it's been used for in the past, send us a message on the station app.

Not saying the building above is, but here's an alleged haunted house in the area and more spooky places in the Hudson Valley:

Beautiful Home or Haunted Headache? You decide.
