HALFMOON, N.Y. (NEWS10) — As the days tick by until NXIVM leader Keith Raniere and his inner circle stand trial on federal racketeering charges, many in the Capital Region are looking back at what they experienced first hand with the group. This included the proposed “World Headquarters” from 2002 right in the heart of Halfmoon.

NXIVM members presented site plans in front of the Town of Halfmoon several times in the early 2000s. The massive building was to replace the Karner Road location we are familiar with today. Those plans, however, were for something much bigger.

As NEWS10 ABC continues to investigate NXIVM, we look at what could have been.
