Special Collections on "Metro Connection" from WAMU

Allen Lee HotelThe old Allen Lee Hotel in Foggy Bottom is getting a major facelift, and WAMU's Rebecca Sheir came by Gelman Special Collections to learn about the building's history with GW's own Professor Chris Klemek. Built as the Llewellyn apartments at the turn of the century, the building at 2224 F St, NW, later became a low-budget hotel and is now slated to become DC's first "pod" hotel with tiny rooms and tiny rates, tagline "Hotel Hive: Buzz More, Spend Less." Listen in as Rebecca Sheir and Chris Klemek browse Special Collections to delve into the hotel's past on WAMU's Metro Connection. And then browse the maps and directories of the site they used on the Digital DC website, a project designed by Klemek, his students, and Special Collections.
