Arp 102B is a subluminous, radio-loud LINER1.8 galaxy at z=0.024. It is thought to harbor a nuclear black hole, estimated to be ~108~M\sun. We present sub-arcsec imaging of the nucleus between 10-20 \mum from Keck and R~60-600 spectroscopy between 5-40 \mum with the Spitzer/IRS. We use the data to place constraints on the bolometric luminosity, dust temperature, nature of dust and physical conditions of the line emitting gas in the vicinity of the supermassive black hole.
