A Yonkers diner could become a hotel if its owner secures a land-use change from the city’s zoning board. Representatives for the American Dream restaurant spoke with city officials about converting the property on South Broadway, LoHud reported. Their proposal comes a few months after the planning board received another application for a hotel on South Broadway. Dennis Monasebian, the chairman of the South Broadway Business Improvement District, however, is opposed to a hotel along the stretch, writing in a letter that it could end up becoming a facility for homeless, mentally ill or drug-addicted populations, according to the outlet. [LoHud]
