Saratoga Springs, NY

I spent a lot of time here over the years as this was the start/finish area for a lot of the large cross-country meets in New York’s Capital District, and my son ran for six years. All that time I wondered why the buildings, while well-maintained, were left vacant and functionless, there for decoration only. Do public baths cost too much to operate? I don’t see why, given that they operated all through the Depression, as evidenced by this postcard.
