distance from railroad centers sound

first to heed the warning. A big
office building,. 2,00 Fifth avenue, now
covers the property. " ' ' ,
- The kinnes fainily, owners 'of the
Hoffman and ' Albermarlfe sites, like
many wealthy "old New York families,
did not pay much -attention to " the
signs of the times. The property
cost them too little' to cause them
to worry s;bout the., income. Their
forefathers 'paid., -only $5,000 'for it
and the rest ofe the ' block back to
Sixth avenue. ' : ' ' .
Although the hotels have not been
paying and ' the , ' Kinneys ; knew it,
since at one time they took over the
management of -the 'Hoffman House,
they did . not 'entertain fny idea of
parting with -tle propeVty, which
brought them in increased value al
