The Sun is Setting on the Castle Ballroom
At some point in recent months, the roof and a central section of the west wall of the Castle Ballroom failed. Vacant for decades and for sale for years, Landmarks members were fortunate enough to enjoy a tour of the building two winters ago. At that time, we were hopeful that a new owner might mean new life for this venerable old jazz club. The extent of the recent collapse probably signals that the building's day's are numbered.
