A Good Sign: Grand Hotel

This Grand Hotel is on Main Street in tiny downtown Nassau, NY, a pretty white clapboard community in Rensselaer County. The Grand Hotel is all of two stories tall, and probably contains four rooms. You won't find Greta Garbo in this place. The hotel is no longer in operation. Nor is the restaurant (see below). All that remains is an attached liquor store. But the store and building are still owned by the family that owned the hotel, and they hope to reopen the lodging and dining arms of the business soon.

A lovely sign. Check on the curving arrow that bears the word "Bar."
