In the past, the White House Hotel used to be a place where people would simply go to sleep for the night. It was meant for people who could not afford a monthly rent, but who could maintain enough cash flow to barely stay off the streets. The flophouse is still considered such a place, albeit a little different. It is located on the historical Bowery of New York City, an area once infamous for its brothels, flophouses and saloons. Up until the 1970s, the hotel was for White people only, hence the name. Residents sleep in four by six foot rooms, big enough for one cot. These rooms have no ceiling of their own, and are placed side by side, connected above by chicken wire. The stories from the flop are often sad, tales of broken down families, estrangement and addiction. It's the last stop for many.
