The old Bellevue mental institution on First Ave between 29th and 30th would make a perfect luxury hotel, the city is trying to convince developers: "There are long corridors, and the rooms aren't very big," said Melissa Konur, vice president of the city's Economic Development Commission, to the Post. The building isn't to be confused with the current Bellevue mental location, at First between 27th and 28th since 1986, as we can personally attest to. (Goodbye, and thanks for all the Xanax!)
