Ludlow Hotel vs. Ludlow Condo
The invaluable EV Grieve points out that the gigantic Ludlow's rapidly-rising new neighbor, the Hotel Ludlow, seems to practically abut the original Ludlow Street eyesore. "What do you do," EV wonders, "if you forked over money for a space in The Ludlow with nice southern exposures... which will soon be exposed to a 170-room hotel?" But aren't these creatures afraid of sunlight? The new monstrosity's boilerplate assures us that it will "pay homage to its chic, authentic neighbors with modern and minimalist decor" and "environmentally conscious finishes."
