Prince of thieves

Thieves completely gutted the notorious Prince Hotel on Schemerhorn Street sometime between over the last six weeks.

The owner of the hotel, the oft-criticized Moses Fried, said that he went to his flophouse style hotel at around 2 pm on Oct. 14 to find that 33 televisions were missing, along with $50,000 in copper and brass pipes.

Fried said a good deal of water damage resulted from the ripped out piping, and that many vanities and doors were also tore up. He added that the thieves had forced their way in through a back door.

Where: 211 Schermerhorn St.
