Boutique Hotel?


I just noticed that one of the oldest and more important buildings in the East Village is up for sale. The Deutsches Dispensary, which up until very recently was the Stuyvesant Polyclinic, is under construction to become a temporary location site for a TV pilot called “Blue Blood,” a police drama. After that, who knows? I hate to say it, but it would probably be a cool boutique hotel…

The old Dispensary stands next to the slightly shorter and more narrow Freie Bibliotehek, the very first building ever erected in the United States specifically as a library. Both were designed by William Schickel and completed in 1884. The terra cotta facades are decorated with owls, globes and portraits of famous Germans (this used to be Little Deutschland).

These building details are hidden behind the tree in the pic above (click either one to enlarge):

    My Thoughts on New Victorian Suites

    I have recently stayed at New Victorian Suites in Lincoln, Nebraska and wanted to share with you guys my experience. I usually don’t do this type of thing, but they really surprised me in terms of the quality of service.

    The room were exceptionally clean, the beds and furniture were brand new just like you would find in high hotels, and most importantly, they responded quickly with any sort of request.

    If you’re around Lincoln, Nebraska anytime soon, consider New Victorian Suites.

    My parents just bought an apartment right next door to this polyclinic. If it becomes a boutique hotel, I guess that’s a good thing for the value of my apartment?
