Culture on the Cheap
Zip112 Back In Business?
Remember my friend whose sister had her reservation canceled by Zip Hostel earlier this week? Well, her tale had taken (yet) another twist.

…Really have no idea what to make of it all at this point – will go check out the place and if it looks OK she will probably stay there with our air-mattress as a back-up. Obviously staying in disputably legal hostels is not ideal but hopefully it will work out OK!
Here’s the email from Zip112 with links to 2 buildings department complaint forms which I thought you might be interested to see.
The problem has been resolved, therefore your reservation is still fine. Here are the city building department link for zip112 5F.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.

So let me get this straight: this building has no Certificate of Occupancy and this hostel is located on a floor that legally does not exist? Welcome to the smash jaw and arbitrary world of code enforcement in north Brooklyn.
