Heading to Boldt Castle, Alexandria Bay, NY in the Thousand Islands. The building in the foreground is called the Alster Tower and was nicknamed "The Playroom". It housed a bowling alley, dance floor, and there was to be a billiard room, library, cafe, grill and kitchen as well. This tower is currently closed as it is under renovation. You can see a small portion of Boldt castle in the background.
