  1. Nice site. The site will house yuppy parents when they visit the area. Perhaps a hot sheet motel that will build equity.

    Much like many midtown far west and east hotels. Which are primarily for cheap tourist stays and extramarital encounters.

  2. Is that the site of the senior Citizens Daycare. I guess another displacement of black people. they are working on extinction..

  3. Very good for kinus and wedding guests
    Plus out of towners

    When the next episode of Covid19 hit or another pandemic it would be made difficult to trace those infected because they are transit. Thus, spreading the disease around the country and world. Crown Heights is very dense!!

  6. I don’t think it is the Senior Center. I think it was a funeral home.
