In the article titled “Distillery planned for derelict property,” which ran in the Friday, Jan. 20, edition of the Sun, it was incorrectly stated that the basement of the building at 31 E. Broadway St. was used by parks and recreation maintenance while work was in progress at College Park gym. In fact, there is no basement in the East Broadway property. Rather, the maintenance crews used to operate from the College Park basement but moved to the building during renovations at the gym.
