Hotel Riverview to Be Hipified By the Goode-MacPhersons?It’s been rumored for weeks, and now the Website Hotel Chatter is saying that “a well credentialed tipster” has told them that Bowery Hotel duo Sean MacPherson and Eric Goode have purchased the Riverview Hotel, at 113 Jane Street, for $33 million. The Riverview, ranked 307 out of 338 on Trip Advisor, is in a great location but is in shitty shape; like the Whitehouse, which preceded the Bowery Hotel, it is basically a flophouse. So this is great news for residents of the Far West Village. Just think, now all the impoverished drunks and ne’er-do-wells who hang out there will be replaced by rich drunks and ne’er-do-wells.
