Lefferts Hotel Forced to Remove Illegal Signage


The Lefferts Hotel at 127 Lefferts Place in Clinton Hill has been a blight on the neighborhood ever since we arrived in 2005 so any news about the owners being forced to play by the rules is good news as far as we’re concerned. There’ve been numerous DOB violations (9) and complaints (47) over the years (not to mention drug and prostitution-related shutdowns by the police) so it was nice to see the Buildings Department react so swiftly when it received a certified letter recently from someone in the community requesting that the signage violations, which had been ignored by the owners for years, be enforced. As the photo above shows, both signs, including the one on the roof that was deemed unsafe, were removed.
