I saw this posted just today, it looks like the Oceanview was sold and will be undergoing a condo conversion. The new owner apparently plans to demolish the historic lobby. Based on what Joey said in the video the architect and the new owner weren’t really aware of its significance and there may be time to have it saved with enough public input.
If you follow this link you can find the letter put together to mail to the town encouraging the renovation and preservation of the lobby section. Please sign and mail in ASAP
There was a room on the third floor that wasn't too shabby.
coincidentally, my wife & I were there photographing the damage yesterday, too.
Thanks for the pictures Joey. I couldn't see this from the Admiral web cam across the street. Looks like the it just rotted out and couldn't handle the snow after years of neglect. Very sad and lets hope the structure of the lobby is not in the same sad shape. By the way I always enjoy your videos!
I never stayed there before but I did stay at the Singapore once and if the owners treated that place the same way than I can't say I'm surprised. I'm not sure the extent of the damage but I think it happened during the first bad storm down there last week.
Meeting time may be changed. But, wow! The roof thing! And I was there a few times taking photos!
I didn't hear that but it doesn't surprise me. The people that ran the Oceanview down did the same thing to the Singapore. Maybe the snow had an effect?
Did anyone see that there was some kind of collapse to the building this week? Apparently, it has been severely let go by its former owners and is in need of repair. There was a video posted on facebook, and I can't tell the extent of the damage, but it looks like either the siding of the roof.
The meeting is at 6 PM on 2/15.
damn shame if it goes. It needed work but oh so elaborate and grand
