Fatal Accident for Algonquin Staffer

Filed under: In Memoriam   Tagged: , ,

Pedro Rodriguez, a 54-year-old Algonquin staffer who had cleaned rooms at the hotel for more than 30 years, was hit by a truck and killed in front of the hotel yesterday, the New York Post reports. It’s been a sad year as well as a celebratory one for the hotel staff; last May a waiter named Ismael Kurkculer was murdered in Jersey City. If anyone knows whether that crime was ever solved, please let me know.
