Williamsburg hotel caters to Orthodox Jewish community

BROOKLYN - A new Williamsburg hotel catering to the Orthodox Jewish community has opened in Brooklyn.

The Condor Hotel, located on Franklin Avenue, is offering a Shabbat elevator that automatically stops at every floor on Friday nights and Saturdays, special bowls for hand washing, a wig stand for women and no televisions.

Owner Zalman Glauber says he hopes to appeal to observant Jews, but also wants to build a reputation for being an alternative and affordable option for New Yorkers needing a place to stay.

The hotel also has a catering hall for wedding receptions and Bar Mitzvahs.
