The City of Quincy has cited the owners of the Newcomb Hotel for maintaining and unsafe structure.

The City filed against Elisha Prero, Agent of Newcomb Realty, LLC for maintaining an unsafe structure at 400 Maine on April 26.  During the night of April 17, an approximately 30 ft tall section of the east wall collapsed during a wind storm.

The City is working through the legal system to obtain ownership in hopes of finding a buyer who can follow through with renovations and bring the five story building back into use. The City is also considering forclosing on the 125-year-old building.

Representatives of the building's owner, Victor Horowitz, were in Quincy last week to inspect the building.
