Need SRO’s For Affordable Housing

Dear Editor,

I read this morning of the Rockaway Park Hotel being sold.

It will remain a S.R.O to which some people will moan.

But, the thing is, there is a lack of affordable housing in the Rockaways.

The Rockaway Park Hotel and Baxter’s Hotel offer rooms for reasonable rates. Despite popular belief bums, crackheads, and drunks don’t live there. In Baxter’s Hotel where I lived for eight months people were either employed or retired. There were no trouble makers or loud music.

So, it is good the Rockaway Park Hotel will still operate and continue to provide lodging for the working class
