And please do not ask to have your photo taken on the Harley

Oh, a few weeks ago we wrote about the "do not sit on bench" sign at the Hells Angels HQ. As we learned (thanks to a reader), the sign was directed toward the guests of the secret vegan hotel operating next door on Third Street.



Maybe hotel officials figured they didn't want their guests plunked over the head with a wrench or something. The hotel recently added their own sign to the front door.

I stayed at the aforementioned "hotel" on a recent trip to New York from the UK after seeing it posted on Craigslist. The apartments at 73 were a good size and pretty cheap (which is why I stayed there, not for the 'spiritually enlightening restful atmosphere' or whatever they were advertising), although the lack of any kind of doorbell/signage/hotel tax payments now makes sense. And I stayed well away from the bench!

Hi Owen. Thanks for the comment. I've looked at the hotel's Web site — does look quite nice, especially the rooftop.

It was a heck of a lot nicer than the room I had at the Hotel Pennsylvania the 1st time I came to NY a few years ago anyway!

What's the name of the fake hotel so I can look it up? When I have visitors they usually stay at the Union Square Inn, not too expensive but it's a walk up. Then they come to my house and it's a walk up. Imagine their enthusiasm.
