The recent burglary at the Princess Hotel at 211 Schermerhorn seems to be one of the strangest bits of news around. According to the Brooklyn Eagle, the hotel had 33 TVs, as well as pipes and copper wiring stolen. This is quite an impressive feat. According to the report, the theft happened “sometime between Wednesday, Sept. 1 and Thursday, Oct. 14.”
Police say the thieves entered the building by forcing the rear door open and making off with the $50,000 in spoils.
