Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode's acquisition of downtown hotels continues apace! Today's Sun confirms what Hotel Chatter swore was true the other day: The dudes behind the Maritime and Bowery hotels have added Jane Street's Riverview Hotel to their portfolio — their plans for it were approved by the community business board last night. They intend to renovate the building — the former American Seaman's Friend Society Sailors Home, which was occupied by sailors who survived the sinking of the Titanic and now houses Socialista — restoring its original, seafaring look but adding amenities like sunbathing decks for the rooms and bars that Zach Braff will undoubtedly enjoy.
