SHARON SPRING – The abandoned 92-year-old Empire Hotel here, a remnant of the village’s glory days as a tourist mecca, collapsed at about 2:30 p.m. today, Mayor Doug Plummer said a few minutes ago.
The four-story stucco structure, vacant for 40 years, was pounded by overnight rains and just “imploded,” said the mayor. “Thankfully, the rain did a beautiful job: It ‘imploded’ inwardly,” he said.
