San Francisco's International Hotel: Mobilizing the Filipino American Community in the Anti-Eviction Movement (Asian American History & Cultu)
San Francisco's International Hotel: Mobilizing the Filipino American Community in the Anti-Eviction Movement (Asian American History & Cultu)
The struggle to save the International Hotel and prevent the eviction of its elderly residents became a focal point in the creation of the contemporary Asian American movement, especially among Filipinos. Like other minorities who were looking for positive models in their past to build an identity movement, Filipino youth found their "roots" in the stories and lives of the "manongs" (respected elders), and the anti-eviction movement became a key site for the formation of a distinct Filipino American consciousness. Estella Habal, a student activist during the anti-eviction protests, relates this history within the context of the broader left politics of the era, the urban housing movement, and San Francisco city politics. Ultimately, the hotel was razed, but a new one now occupies the site and commemorates the residents and activists who fought for low-income housing for the elderly and their right to remain in their own community.

National Maritime Union, Joseph Curran Annex
National Maritime Union, Joseph Curran Annex
National Maritime Union, Joseph Curran Annex. architect : Albert C. Ledner location : 100 Ninth Ave, bet. W 16th and W 17th Streets. neighborhood : Chelsea date : 1966 style : International Style II type : Office Building Guest rooms built for members of a sailors' union - each with windows shaped like portholes - and later used by runaway teenagers and then by visitors from China are now occupied by hip visitors to New York in what is now the Maritime Hotel. The hotel is the latest incarnation of the white-tile 12-story structure that occupies the blockfront on the east side of Ninth Avenue between 16th and 17th Streets. Its introduction signifies a new partnership on the New York hotel scene: that of the club and restaurant impresarios Sean K. MacPherson and Eric Goode, who offered the winning bid for the property, $19 million when it was sold in 2001, and the hotel developers Richard Born and Ira Drukier. Mr. MacPherson and Mr. Goode are known individually for clubs in New York, like Mr. Goode's Area, MK and the Bowery Bar; in Los Angeles for places like Mr. MacPherson's Bar Marmont, Swingers and Jones; and jointly for the Park restaurant in New York, created from three former taxi garages on 10th Avenue near 18th Street. No sooner did the two club operators complete the acquisition than they called Mr. Born and Mr. Drukier, developers, owners and operators of hotels including the Chambers and the Stanhope, as well as the glassy loft condominium towers on Perry Street designed by Richard Meier. Mr. Born and Mr. Drukier had also bid on the old union building. The building has an eclectic past. It was designed in 1966 for the National Maritime Union by Albert C. Ledner, a New Orleans architect. It served as the annex to the union's main building on Seventh Avenue between 12th and 13th Streets and included living quarters and instructional, medical and recreation space. In 1987 it was converted into a home for runaway youths by Covenant House. Nine years later, it changed hands again, when it was sold to the New York Service Center for Chinese Study Fellows, which provided a variety of housing and educational services for Chinese students, artists and businesspeople. The existing walls of the 120 guest rooms and 4 suites, each facing west and with a circular window five feet in diameter, are staying in place. The rooms, with new dark teak built-in furnishings and glossy white ceilings, are vaguely evocative of ship staterooms. February 5, 2003 Sailors, Runaways and Now, Bicoastal Hoteliers By NADINE BROZAN A portholed Chelsea building, designed in the 60's for a sailors' union and later enlisted as a teenagers' shelter, is to be redeveloped as a hotel. Guest rooms built for members of a sailors' union — each with windows shaped like portholes — and later used by runaway teenagers and then by visitors from China are soon to be occupied, the building's new owners hope, by hip visitors to New York in what is now the Maritime Hotel.

No sooner did the two club operators complete the acquisition than they called Mr. Born and Mr. Drukier, developers, owners and operators of hotels including the Chambers and the Stanhope, as well as the glassy loft condominium towers on Perry Street designed by Richard Meier. Mr. Born and Mr. Drukier had also bid on the old union building. "They signed the contract to buy and called me about 10 minutes later and said they wanted to talk about doing it together," Mr. Born said. "We then joined forces to buy the property and own the hotel. "Then Sept. 11 happened, and we all looked at each other and asked, `Do we really want to move forward?' " he recalled. "We had several other hotel sites that we put on hold, but we made a decision to move forward with this because we think we're going to offer a product that is a little unique and that at our price point, we can survive and prosper even post-9/11." The total cost of the project is about $33 million. The building has an eclectic past. It was designed in 1966 for the National Maritime Union by Albert C. Ledner, a New Orleans architect.
