Response to Plastic Bridge in Adirondakc's Pigoen Lake Wilderness Stirs Controversy


LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- One of the last of the Golden Age hotels in the Adirondacks is being demolished.
Crews were razing the Agora Complex at the Lake Placid Club, where a theater, chapel, and 90 hotel units drew the rich and famous in the early 1900s, the Plattsburgh Press-Republican reported in Thursday's paper.
The Lake Placid Club was founded in 1895 by Melvil Dewey, the inventor of the Dewey Decimal System. The five-story hotel was credited with luring the 1932 Winter Olympics to Lake Placid.
