NY gets bids for former Adirondack prison camp

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - In a third auction attempt, New York officials have sold a former minimum-security state prison on 92 acres in the Adirondacks.

The Office of General Services says the winning bid for Camp Gabriels in the Franklin County town of Brighton was $210,777 from Mohammad Ibrahim from Brooklyn. His plans weren't immediately disclosed.

The minimum-security prison without fences that had 48 buildings closed in 2009.

When OGS tried to sell the property twice previously, it set minimum prices of $950,000 and $750,000 and received no bids.

It was established a century ago as a tuberculosis sanitarium.

According to OGS, six other bidders made offers ranging from $91,117 to $166,000.
