I agree this problem plagued teacher was on a mission which led her to A motel. Not necessarily the Capri. The Capri is a bit secluded which probably was the reason she selected it. Due to the problems there,I believe the village would try to raze this property as Oceanside and West Hempstead did if they has an interest. Maybe the assisted living facility across the street could find a good use for it?

That hotel is home to many pedaphiles listed on Meghan's Law. For all the taxes we pay in this town, it is a shame and a disgrace to the community and unsafe for our children. There are beautiful homes behind the motel and sad it is so unsafe for the children who live around it.
