In early July the Eagle reported, in a story we linked to here, that one of the hotel’s owners, either David Bistricer or Joseph Chetrit, had said that “a major announcement” about the hotel would be made soon. It was presumed that this would be of a firm opening date for the hotel, which has been postponed several times since six years ago. No such announcement has been made, and no visible work has been done on the hotel for some time. The Bossert’s renovation process is beginning to rival in length the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza.
Now the Brooklyn Paper reports that, after the paper’s unsuccessful attempts to get information from the developers and their property manager, an unidentified “local community leader” has said he or she believes the developers, Bistricer and Chetrit, “have been bickering — likely about money — and it’s causing the holdup.”
The Brooklyn Paper piece ends with a quotation from BHB stalwart Andrew Porter.
