Climbing through the attic of the long-abandoned Hotel Empire in Sharon Springs, NY, I was surprised to come across this room built out of one of the turrets - the only finished room in the attic, and containing this antique bedframe with a pile of mattresses placed on top of it.  Water damage has caused them to bow in the middle, but this still leaves the question of why they were all piled on a single bedframe to begin with…

Of all the abandoned hotels in the former resort town of Sharon Springs, the Hotel Empire is the least vandalized.  This might seem surprising, being that it’s been abandoned longer than most - the last room was rented out in 1993.  But this lovely building, once a bustling resort hotel that catered to Brooklyn’s Ashkenazi Jewry, is smack in the middle of a residential neighborhood, surrounded on four sides by houses that are still occupied.  As such, it is not an easy target for the spraypaint-and-sledgehammer crowd, and has remained virtually untouched in 21 years.  On the top floor, this Du Mont combination radio/television set (roughly 1940s vintage) remains remarkably intact, and surprisingly has not been looted - a testament to the difficulty of sneaking into this hotel, and to the wonderful treasures one is likely to find when a location is difficult to access.
