Former Glory Days Bar caves in overnight
By WKTV News
Story Updated: Jul 14, 2014 at 7:29 AM EDT

HERKIMER, N.Y.(WKTV)- A portion of the former Glory Days Bar on North Main Street in Herkimer has collapsed.

NewsChannel 2's crews on the scene say it that part of the roof caved in on Sunday night.

One person nearby reported that she heard a loud rumble around 9 p.m.

Both police and the codes and zoning enforcement department have been notified.

Many remember the building as the site where Kurt Myers hid from police following a lengthy standoff, back in March 2013.

Myers killed four people and injured two others after the shooting spree.

Eventually a tactical team along with FBI agents, rushed the former bar killing Myers in a shootout.

The owners knew it would eventually happen. The village knew it would eventually happen. All previous owners knew it too. The upstairs sloping floors and tilting walls were an indication that this was just a matter of time. What did codes do about it? Nothing. What did the owners do? Nothing. What did Herkimer Now do? Paint the alley wall for the owners for free. Volunteerism might make people feel good, but it changes nothing if the owner does nothing except say thank you for painting for us.

keep letting greedy real estate vampires rape and pillage everything worth a nickel out of these once historic buildings and all you have left is a worthless liability. They take then they abandon.

I believe insurance will now be collected on the damage if owners had insurance on it. They collect and leave property to herkimer for cleanup on village expense.. Latest landlord scam. Make sense now?

That's a good question. Insurers don't insure buildings that their own inspectors or regulatory bodies (i.e. Herkimer Codes) have deemed unsafe. Would be interesting to peruse inspection reports on that structure and learn whether any insurance outfit was dumb enough to insure it.

The collapse has further undermined the structural integrity of what remains such that we will probably see the structure demolished at some point, given the hazard it poses to the safety and welfare of the welfarians who lounge in front of it on their coolers and folding chairs.

Who pays for demoliiton?

This is a real clusterboink and another setback for the cursed Main Street.

You can't really fault the village gov't here, however, they have been too busy harassing the Mangia Macrina pizza truck guy over his wood-fired stove to have time to tend to smaller & less important issues like Main Street collapsing before our eyes.

Who owns the building? For that matter, who owns the REST of the rat traps on Main St.? Love to see the landlords' names painted on the buildings they own.

Found the new mayor's response interesting-we can't do anything about it. Have to wait and see what current owner will do. If this is a hazard, the village can most definitely deem it such and take it down themselves. Sounds like previous mayor.

What do you want me to do? I inherited this mess. Tear the building down you fat pile of pig slop, it will give the DPW something to do than sitting around doing nothing all day.
