This is sad, just because when things end, it is sad. The last hotel in Trenton, New Jersey, which has been vacant since Marriot left the building in June, was sold to a broadcasting company today for $6 million.

I suppose it’s true–there’s not much to see in Trenton these days, besides maybe a little Thunder action when A-Rod comes to town. Maybe somebody should have made Jay-Z’s old drug corner into a tourist attraction. Or a small museum dedicated to Mayor Tony Mack‘s most salacious alleged crimes.

Anyways, we’ll have to go someplace else for our kicks now.
