Yesterday, Brownstoner had a big Brooklyn Heights scoop: Watchtower is putting one of the neighborhood's biggest landmark old hotel's on the market. Today, the story of the sale of The Bossert on Montague Street is everywhere. The Bossert hits a lot of notes locally. It's where the Brooklyn Dodgers celebrated their first and last championships. Back in the day, the 14-story building was called the "Waldorf Astoria of Brooklyn." Most of the 224 rooms are occupied by Jehovah's Witnesses, but six are apparently occupied by rent stabilized tenants that came with the building. The Watchtower Society, which is cashing in on some major real estate holdings in the Heights, hasn 't set a price on the old hotel. It will be putting it up for auction. How much will one of the prime landmark buildings in the neighborhood go for? Will it be a luxe rental or condo? Stay tuned.
