What's the story behind it? Why has nothing gone in it recently?

I always think abandoned buildings are very interesting and I'm always curious about the story behind them. There are a few abandoned buildings in the area and they somehow still have a ton of character to them. I pass by one every day and I'm very curious to know what the story behind it is.

Where's this particular abandoned building located in the Hudson Valley?

Excuse me while I try to get all the logistics of it. The building is located off of Route 55 and it's across from the Country Commons Shopping Plaza in Lagrangeville. It's pushed back a little from the road and it almost looks like at one point it could have been a drive-in movie theater. Hmmm...

Any future activity in Lagrangeville?

Every time I drive by it there hasn't been much activity, or construction and nobody checking it out or cleaning it up. It's a great space and I bet a business could do really well there.

Here are some suggestions of what could go there:

  • A hardware store
  • A florist
  • A pet supply shop
  • A small grocery store
  • An escape room
  • A Halloween/Christmas/holiday fair or attraction

Those are just my ideas. Do you know what used to be in the building? What's the story behind it? Are there any future plans for a business to occupy it? Let us know on the station app.

Come See The Delicious Life-Sized Gingerbread House in Warren County

Adam Savage, Director of Culinary for Spruce Hospitality, took the lead on designing the gingerbread house. He and his team have worked for months to plan and prepare for the display. Adam said, "The house is made of over 987 lbs of homemade gingerbread, 223 lbs of icing, and 152 lbs of assorted candy. The actual production and building of the display took well over 200 hours.” 
The candy for the display was sourced by The Candy Space, located in the French Mountain Common Outlets and a sister company of The Queensbury. The Queensbury Hotel also partnered with the Upstate Modern Railroaders of South Glens Falls, who provided train sets for the display.
