Review of The Sunshine Hotel

Great sound, good mix of voices. This is a high-quality audio documentary that could play anywhere, at any level. Nathan, the narrator of the main piece, was fantastic, but some of the script didn't sound like him, it sounded like a script someone had written for him. Good glimpse inside some of life's seediness. I feel both like I have a good view of the hotel, but I also want to visit the Bowery, as some sort of strange New York tourism exchange.

"Charlie's Story" excellent, too. Kudos to producers that can pull this off. I would recommend this to any PD who wants a memorable story, especially if the topic is skid row. The age of the piece is irrelevant.
