New Downtown Brooklyn Hotel Does Things by the Numbers

New, 5 comments

Brooklyn: The Brand marches on, all the way to 231 Duffield Street in Downtown Brooklyn, where Brownstoner reports that the new hotel opening in November will be called Hotel 718. Area codes haven't been this hot since the days of G-Funk! If 231 Duffield Street sounds familiar, that's because it was the site of a house that was linked to the Underground Railroad. That building was demolished to make way for yet another inn on Duffield's new hotel row. The 718 area code is also in use in Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island, so we would've gone with something like Hotel DoBro, or HoDoBro for short. Maybe that's why we're not hotel developers.
