It will take alot of disposable income from an owner to revitalize this old structure. If you want higher rent than you have to offer hotel service as Mr. shaffer indicates. A few may pay a little higher rent, but not enough will pay higher rates for the return needed in the mean time to be cost effective . My opinion is pay a few hundred thousand to demolish (asbestos) & start over. it will take at least 1million to do all this.....and then several years to get a return on investment...my bet it will end up like The Waldo.
I hear the place is evicting people now place will close soon . Hope owner has a lot of money. Wow couldn't stay in business more than 2 months. That's pathetic!

Just found this post and was disturbed by what some people were posting and how quickly some of you are to judge on topics you have no first-hand knowledge of. To start off, I admit I do not know the current conditions of the hotel. However, 20 years ago, when my best friend and I were 18 years old, we found ourselves at the front door of the Parson Hotel. It was not luxurious by any means, but it was not the sh*thole some of you have claimed it to be.(I am assuming those of you who think it was a sh*thole came from well-to-do families.) We had heat and we had our own bathroom. Mrs. LaRosa was very kind to us, as she was kind to all the tennants. She knew us all by name and even gave some of the tennants jobs. Yes, there was occasional debauchery, but there were also many people living within those walls who were not addicts, prostitutes, or criminals. Many of those people were just down on their luck. Hopefully, those of you pointing fingers never have to experience that. And Mrs. LaRosa took them all in. Repeat offenders WERE kicked out.

I learned a lot while living at the Parson's. I met a lot of interesting people with interesting stories. It was there that I learned patience, compassion, and empathy. I learned not to judge a book by its cover.

These days, I teach high school and am two classes away from receiveing my master's degree. My best friend is a registered nurse and a mother of three. While not all former occupants of the Parson Hotel have been as successful as she and I have become, I am sure there are many who have moved on and found their own way. Everyone there, especially Mrs. LaRosa, was very kind and always kept an eye on us.

People who have known nothing but a life of priviledge judge the Parson Hotel by its cover: they see it as an eyesore and a haven for community cast-a-ways. I praise the hotel for helping people down on their luck to keep a little dignity about themselves in providing a place - even if it's only a room - to call their own and keeping them from living in shelters or on the streets. I will be saddened to see it go.

The owner is Dominick LaRosa from Maryland. JoAnn LaRosa is only the manager there. They are appealing the place being shut down.
Dominick is her husband, he is deceased, she now owns the building, this came straight from her mouth.

Dominick is a cousin of Joan LaRosa's husband Virgil. Joan no longer has the hotel

Some of us go our entire lives without making an impact on someone's Life. The previous post shows just 2 of the many people Joan helped. When my late wife passed I remember Virgil and Joan both being there for me. I would sit at their kitchen table and eat cheese and drink wine. I nor my children will ever forget how much they mean to us.

Many of us profess to be Christians, When you think of Christ's teachings think of who has been there for years helping the poor and the less fortunate. If you are lucky enough to know someone as great as Joan and Virgil LaRosa you will be blessed.

Thank you Virgil!

Thank you Joan.

Hey Martin how many people have been injured by falling bricks this week from that shithole Waldo you keep holding onto? You're nothing but a progress-blocking slumlord who's never earned anything in life.

orangeandgreen, you say you have been on HUD for years? How long are you going to milk the system? You have balls to talk about The Parsons. Since for the most part you are getting taken care of by the system why not ask for a place with a pool, hot tub and all the other extras, shit I'm paying for it. How would you like it if you were told you could live at the Parsons or under the bridge, then where would you pick. Talk about pot calling the kettle black.

you are right, the city code guys I would bet r being paid off.... Just a matter of time and they will be revealed. The owner now doesn't care in that place will go downhill quickly. The owner is Dominic Larosa and he lives in Washington DC. I hear he is a big crook and not a nice person.

Dominic Larosa has only caused Joan pain and suffering.
He is no good, and was a felon.
He was dishonest and Joan husband trusted him.
That is the truth.

Too bad a judge could not see how crazy he was!

Joan only tried to help people, she is a good person.

aying, just curious, I guess you think it is OK for orangeandgreen to call the owners of the Parsons a wop. I think it is strange what you think is nice and not nice. orangeandgreen is on HUD and has the balls to talk about someone working, contributing to his or her's welfare and providing people somewhere to live that has to be better than under the bridge. I don't have a problem with someone getting welfare but I do have a problem with someone like orangeandgreen who thinks that is an entitlement that they deserve forever than talk about people who work. The same people that are feeding her, him or it.
