Replacing a ‘blighted eyesore’
(Page 2 of 2)
Howard Schwach/ Herald
The West 130 complex replaced the notorious Courtesy Hotel.

The four-story building features underground parking, as well as such upscale amenities as a pool, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a business center, a game room and an outdoor fire pit.

On May 12, 2011, Murray led the cheers as a large crowd watched a wrecking ball take aim at the Courtesy. The crowd cheered every time the wrecking ball hit the building, until it flattened it.

Murray now says she is thrilled by what she sees at the site. “The town … is ecstatic about the opening of West 130, a beautiful, ‘smart-growth’ luxury apartment community …,” she said in a press release. “The town is proud to partner with Mill Creek Residential Trust on this project, creating a groundbreaking transit oriented development zone, which made it possible for desirable and attractive residences to replace a blighted eyesore known as the Courtesy Hotel. The West 130 luxury apartment complex is restoring luster to West Hempstead’s downtown.
