    The Freeman St station is a 30 minute walk from the site. The Metro North is a few feet away. I don’t know why that wasn’t mentioned. And why would a developer with any sense build a hotel in that area? Not even close to enough to Yankee Stadium to justify it.

    • The courthouses are nearby. Plus there has been a lot of middle and working class housing built. Those people have friends and family who want to visit them. So a small “budget” hotel can work. Case in point – there has been a Days Inn nearby functioning for years.
