Blighted Property Finally Bought...Headed for Restoration
After sitting as a beacon of blight for the many who travel NYS 3 to Sackets to see how quaint the village is, the former Rusted Route Restaurant has been bought by a Sackets businessman who is cleaning up the scruffy property.
A variety of restaurants occupied the building and the place made news on occasion, one time for a brutal homicide and later for money woes that resulted in the state shuttering the eaterie.
It is said to be on the path to being a restaurant again.
This is a good example as the cycle of blight when ownership goes awry. It takes years and it did hear before an auction yielded a price that made economic sense to someone who had the means to accomplish something.
