Postmarked June 12, 1935, the new Hotel Scarboro Hotel keeps some of the original character of the one it replaced in the detail of the carport and balconies.  The only thing to remain throughout the years to today is the fire hydrant on the corner.  Today  this is the site of the Sea View Towers, originally named Scott Towers after the builders grandson Scott Marlin, memorialized by a cornerstone marble "S" found on the site from the demolished Scarboro.  Sea View Towers has recently been slated for demolition and we shall soon see a 4th generation of construction on this site.  I've been told by the builder's son, Howard, that a time chest lies hidden in one corner. It would be great to see it carried forward with the marble "S" and incorporated into the new structure.

This building is titled "The Brighton Hotel", this one was located on the corner where the Bank of New York is today.
