Murray Hill: Setting up a possible ideal scenario for a horror film, the city is trying to turn the old Bellevue psych hospital on First Avenue into a luxury hotel. Did we just hear tortured screams coming from the spa? [NYS]
Ozone Park: Should landmark status be sought for the apartment here where Jack Kerouac planned his cross-country jaunt that led to On the Road, not to mention for the Richmond Hill home where he worked on the book? [NYDN]
