Corrections / Clarifications /Updates, as of January 3, 2005
Photographs of the fire were taken by Jack Bakker (Chapter 7). His name was
misspelled in the credits.
Regarding the 1926 trainload of snow brought in for the ski jump, local legend
has persisted for years that snow was brought in from Canada. This was the era
of Prohibition, and it has been said that whiskey etc was buried in the snow. I
do not doubt the story. However, the New York Times reported that the snow came
from the Adirondacks.
New construction has not occurred at the site of Briarcliff Lodge, and the
current owner, Barrington Venture, is said to be rethinking its options. (Sale
of the property to Hyatt Classic was announced in the fall of 2004.)
The fire of September 20, 2003 has officially been ruled an
Dr. Radandt's name was misspelled. He
was President of The King's College when it closed in Briarcliff Manor.
The official spelling of The King's
College includes "The" with a capital-T. The publisher does not
follow this convention, although the reference here is to God, not to a
Briarcliff Lodge Book homepage
Yaz’ Hudson Valley Ruins and Abandoned Buildings, etc.
