Workers begin to put up a sidewalk shed around the Washington Hotel on Beach 125 Street and Rockaway Beach Boulevard last week. The original hotel opened before World War II. The new building, dedicated in 1966, hosted thousands of weddings, bar mitzvahs, family parties, religious and civic affairs and political events of all kinds. The kosher catering hall and hotel, which closed its doors for good in December of 2003, will be demolished in the coming weeks to make room for nine two-family homes, according to its owners. 008p1_xlg.jpg
