SARATOGA SPRINGS – After a long history including years of litigation, the historic Winnans-Crippen House, located at 66 Franklin Street was demolished. All that remained by Tuesday was the foundation, and by the time you read this, you won’t see that either. So we thought that we should chronicle the structure’s end.
Regardless as to how you felt about this issue, I am reminded of the bittersweet irony of this building’s demise so soon after Kyle York’s untimely death, for he was relentless in his fervor to see 66 Franklin down. It’s hard not to imagine him smirking somewhere.
