The Empire hotel was erected in 1947 and was once a popular Hotel. It was eventually converted to an apartment building and, until 2009, housed up to 100 tenants in 52 rooms. On October 8, 2009 the hotel caught fire causing water and smoke damage that was estimated at $5 to $6 million. The hotel was torn down brick by brick over a period of year. The building's inside was gutted until only a shell remained. It was then torn down floor by floor until they were at street level. The basement was filled with the bricks from the former hotel and then covered with fill. The site currently remains empty.

I used to frequent the bar in the basement of this hotel often back in the late 80's. Believe it was JT's Tavern at the time. Wow, some great memories there.
