The fate of Radium Springs Casino

August 20, 2002

The future looks bleak for the Radium Springs Casino. The casino is set to be demolished by the end of the year through the FEMA Flood Buyout Program.

Albany city commissioners approved a resolution asking for an act of Congress to save the historic landmark. Today, they reviewed several alternatives to demolition, including moving the building to another site.

The Casino would have to be cut into at least three pieces before it could be relocated. Another option would be salvaging a few pieces with historical significance and demolishing the rest of the building.

But without Congressional help, the city has no way to save the building.
