Cleveland: Pick - Carter Hotel

The Pick - Carter Hotel at 1012 Prospect Avenue opened as the Hotel Winton in 1917. The 500 room hotel was later purchased by the Albert Pick hotel chain and renamed after Lorenzo Carter. The hotel had a $1 million renovation in 1969. A tragic fire in April 1971 killed 7 guests, after which the hotel closed. The hotel was later remodeled for low income housing and renamed the Carter Monor.

Wow. Brings back memories - was wondering what happened to the Pick-Carter. I was a kid when the fire happened and forgot about it.
