You’d have to be vigilant to stay here

No awning, neon letters, or front desk—just a tiny black and white sign welcoming you to the Vigilant Hotel, at Eighth Avenue and 29th Street. It’s been around in some form or another since at least 1907. With luxe hotels popping up all over the city, it’s nice to see a joint like this can still pay the rent in the neighborhood.
