Brownstoner reports today that the Watchtower Tract and Bible Society has put the Bossert Hotel on the block. The hotel has been called the "Waldorf Astoria" of Brooklyn. The landmark building once housed many of the Brooklyn Dodgers and its roof deck was a celebrity destination in the 1920s. It's hard to put a price on such a storied property and the Watchtower has opted not to set one — they've put out a "Request for Best Offer" to potential buyers. The hotel currently has 224 apartments.
How much do you think it'll go for? Think it will become condos? Co-ops? Or will a new group join the neighborhood?
The Brooklyn Eagle has a great article on the hotel and its history.
