It was here in 1966 that a robber had cut out the manager's eye to show he was serious about wanting some money. In 1974, another manager was shot, then taken to St Luke's Hospital just down the street where he died (All around St Lukes there is a public housing project known at the time for its criminal element). Years later, the cold case police used old fingerprints to track down the shooter, who was then a preacher in Washington.

Currently a Super 8 Motel
