Race to save castle on the Hudson

The Bannerman's Island Arsenal is seen on Pollepel Island, N.Y., on Tuesday, June 5, 2012. Though it looks like it was built to withstand battering rams, it was actually a surplus military goods warehouse made to resemble a Scottish castle. Businessman Francis Bannerman VI had it built early in the 20th century as a place to store helmets, haversacks, mess kits and munitions he could not store in his thriving shop in Manhattan.
