A goon robbed a posh hotel on the border of Gowanus and Park Slope at gunpoint last month and now cops are asking for help finding him.

The bandit strolled into Hotel Le Bleu, a chic boutique hotel on Fourth Avenue, at about 2:30 am on Nov. 23, flashed a gun, and grabbed an undisclosed amount of cash, cops said.

No one was injured, but images police are circulating appear to show the jerk putting his hands on a frightened clerk.

Police describe the suspect as a 175-pound male in his 20s with short, black hair.

The seven-story hotel opened in 2007 as part of an unlikely guest house boom in industrial Gowanus and boasts a rooftop restaurant and bar that this paper referred to as a “game changer” when it began serving in 2009. It went on the market for a whopping $12-million in July.

Congrats to the thief who robbed this out - of - place hotel built on toxic soil that houses visiting enabling parents from culdesacia who came to see their "artist" kidults.

Congrats to the developers who are buying out the subsidized housing rented out to the enabling parents where Diehipster and the loser criminals he admires so much reside.

Not only did Le Bleu lost the cheese but methinks the clerk may have first from the looks of it, 'cut' said cheese upon the display of a weapon... sorry folks, couldn't resist. I was baited by the headline.
