John Baxter, center, and more than a dozen residents of his SRO hotel on Beach 116 Street, face off against Belle Harbor resident Howard Sirota (back to camera) in front of his Beach 128 Street home. Baxter and his residents were picketing Sirota because of a letter that was published in The Wave challenging Baxter to have his hotel inspected and calling its residents undesirables. The two later had an altercation that led to Sirota’s arrest. The trial will begin next week.024p1_xlg.jpg
