Keller Hotel

    Newer Older

    The abandoned Keller Hotel on West Street by the highway in NYC's West Village.

    "The hotel, built in 1898 as sailors’ lodgings, was one of many such places that once lined the West Side waterfront, offering a clean, safe alternative to the dens of ill repute that beckoned the unwary seafarer. It operated for decades but eventually became a single-room-occupancy hotel, and then a welfare hotel, before closing about 15 years ago."
