Beyond #Metoo: Greenpoint Sexual Assault Taskforce hosted Discussion at Wythe Hotel

Beyond #Metoo

Last Monday, the Greenpoint Sexual Assault Task Force hosted Beyond #Metoo, a panel discussion and conversation with the NYPD, elected officials, and victim’s rights advocates to “discuss how the system does and does not work for rape and assault victims at the local level.” The even’t’s goal was “to empower all individuals to know the steps to pursuing justice and care for themselves or their friends and family, while also opening up an opportunity for honest feedback about how the system could work more effectively to serve victim’s needs.”

The panel drew a crowd of community members who filled the Wythe Hotel auditorium on North 11th Street, and featured 94th Precinct Captain Billy Glynn and Councilman Stephen Levin, as well as representatives from Safe Horizons, Wyckoff Hospital Victim’s Advocates, the NYPD Special Victims Department, Brooklyn Legal Services, and the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office.  Continue reading

The Fascinating and Tragic History of The Wythe Hotel

The Weidmann Cooperage before its renovation
The Weidmann Cooperage before its renovation

The Wythe Hotel at North 11th Street and Wythe Avenue is a symbol of cool in trendy Williamsburg. The building is a combination of old and new, with a three story sleek glass tower rising out of the remnants of a 1901 industrial building. The hotel’s L-shaped rooftop bar The Ides has stunning views of the Manhattan skyline, attracting people from around the world to the 72-room boutique hotel. People use words like chic, trendy and ultra-modern in describing the building, but it has a fascinating and tragic past that stretches back to the 1890’s—and that past is still evident in today’s hotel building.
