I don't see gambling working out well in Tupper Lake.

Gambling only "succeeds" when is limited. Vegas was first and only for a long time. Then came Atlantic City I think. Now Connecticut, Central NY, where else? Seems like a race to the bottom.

Probably. I just wanted to go the polar opposite of the rich real estate golf resort idea. So then, what else is there?

Is the town just doomed? Things do cycle out. That's reality.

I wonder what Benny has to say.

I don't have the answer. Logging is gone.

I feel like if you can't attract the rich the casinos will either be empty or they will attract those who can't afford it.

Disclosure: I am not objective on this.  To me casinos feel like a microscopic step up from a heroine business.  Not sure why I feel that way. We spend our money on all kinds of non-productive things.

I agree, but I was just shooting from the hip with any idea I could. I'm not a fan of casinos at all. Is snowmobiling a big thing around there? Can that help a slow winter economy?

I think there is snowmobiling in the area, but the area to the southwest more suited to it as it gets a lot more lake effect  > snow at low elevations.

Snowmobiles are really big a bit west of Tupper in the area from Star Lake , Cranbury Lake to Chilwold.  That is a high plateau and its closer to Lake Ontario so it gets pounded with Lake effect.  I used to drive to LP from Watertown every weekend and that was the section that was the worst to drive and you'd see hundreds of snowmobiles.

You are right to feel that way. If you go into a backwater casino in Nevada what you will see is the elderly, usually in a wheel chair, O2 attached, smoking heavily and pulling the handle like a robot. It's enough to make you puke.

From bad to worse for the ACR. Check out todays ADE article on the LA Group filing liens on ACR properties(actual and proposed). ADK Jeff, maybe you can post the article. And for another piece of the puzzle, one of the buildings on Park St that the developer said he would never let it go to foreclosure was foreclosed on back in mid December. Former restaurant went to auction, now bank owned.
