What’s the Mystery Behind the Disparaged Building in Poughkeepsie?
There has to be an interesting story behind it. The Hudson Valley is filled with cool buildings and most of them are pretty unique. However, there are some eye sores in the area as well and it's unfortunate that they have fallen in such disrepair. It always makes you wonder things like how did that happen? Why is nobody keeping it up? Who owned it previously and what is the story behind it? There's a building I pass on the way to work every morning and I wonder all of these questions when I go by.
What's the story behind this abandoned building in Poughkeepsie?
It actually looks like it was once a pretty cool business. It has great windows and easy access to it because it's right off of the road. I swear last year when I drove by it seemed like someone had purchased it and was starting work, but then nothing really happened. Hmmmm.
Where is the abandoned building located?
The building is located right off of Noxon Road in Poughkeepsie and it's right before the big intersection that houses multiple gas stations. It also looks like residential houses are being built right near it and a potential neighborhood could be going behind it.
What should go in the building?
It's a great location and with a little love and care a new business could do great in it. I was brainstorming some possible ideas for the location:
- a candy store
- a florist
- a tailor or sewing shop
- a small coffee shop
- a consignment shop
