Bronx Hotel Worries Neighbors; World's Fair Photographs

THE BRONX—A new 60-room Days In Hotel at 2338 Bruckner Boulevard in the Castle Hill section of the Bronx is causing some controversy, as the neighbors, according to local blog Welcome2TheBronx, "[fear] it would turn into another hot sheet motel like the infamous Capri Motel which recently shuttered its doors and is now serving as a homeless shelter." Wyndham Hotel Group, who are developing the hotel, claims that those fears are unfounded, however. [W2TB]
