New Greenpoint Hotel Text

So, the first new hotel to open in Williamsburg-Greenpoint won’t be a boutique hotel near Bedford Avenue. It will be one at 40 Withers, right up against the BQE, in Greenpoint. We don’t know if it will be affiliated with any chains (it has that Days Inn kind of look) or if there will be mirrors on the ceilings (yes, it’s a cheap shot, just like the headline), but it’s seven stories tall and will have 54 rooms. It’s also very convenient to Bamonte’s (like, overlooking the Bamonte’s parking lot) and should offer excellent, if not dramatic, views of traffic on the BQE. Another view of the place North Brooklynites can put mom up for the night or go when there are too many roommates around is below.

    No… really? Weird. Now.. with a scenic view of the BQE! And a gas station! At least they can cross under the BQE and buy enough liquor at the discount store across the street that it won’t matter where they’re staying.

    Is it a hotel or was it just filed as such at DOB – common practice for residential buildings in manufacturing zones, particularly if a rezoning is on the horizon. There were a few other buildings that were filed as hotels in anticipation of the GW rezoning.

    Also, at one point someone was projecting an sro-type hotel for somewhere around here. Don’t know if this it.
