They did fix up this hotel really nice. All of Brooklyn Heights are so pleased to finally get rid of the Watchtower.Properties will go back on tax rolls and residents will no longer subsidize this religion.I have heard they are giving up on the United States and concentrating on 3rd world countries. It seems the internet is greatly accelerating the downsizing of this end of the world religion.

Please say it is not true that they are selling it to a corporation that will change it into an by the hour hotel.
