WHCA Wants Courtesy Hotel Closed
The Courtesy Hotel has long been a troublesome spot for the members of the West Hempstead Civic Association. The civic association has been trying for years to have the hotel, which is said to be the location of various acts of criminal activity and a blight on the community, closed down. The Town of Hempstead has served the owners of the Courtesy Hotel with a summons and complaint, seeking legal recourse before the State Supreme Court to close down the hotel under the town's nuisance law.
