Rochester’s Cadillac Hotel has closed and boarded up its doors....as the owners prepare for a renovation project.
Sister Grace Miller of the House of Mercy and other homeless advocates protested in front of the hotel on Chestnut Street....saying the low income residents have been displaced so the nearly 100 year old hotel can be turned into upscale apartments. She says Monroe County Social Services worked to move the residents out instead of standing by them.
The hotel management isn’t commenting on its future plans.
The House of Mercy and the Homeless Union of Rochester want one last tenant admitted back into the hotel. They say it's still her legal residence but her things were moved to the House of Mercy shelter without her consent while she was in the hospital.
