Clock Keeps Ticking on Bowery Flophouse Residents

New, 8 comments

The White House hotel (or Whitehouse, if you prefer) is one of a few remaining reminders of the gritty days of the Bowery, but the raggedy flophouse has used up at least seven or eight of its lives. Voracious hotel developer Sam Chang has the building in his sights, longtime tenants are taking buyouts and now, a Curbed tipster notes, housing court hearings for remaining residents?many of whom are in pretty rough shape?are something of a regular occurrence. Godspeed, little shithole.
