Kurt Hollander: Happy City

More than a dozen love motels string up along a single inner-city highway full of car repair shops, gas stations and industrial parks in Santo Domingo, the capital city of the Dominican Republic. Some of the motels were designed to look like exclusive suburban communities, with small houses spread out along inner courtyards flanked by palm trees, while others look like regal palaces with majestic cupolas. The oldest motel was built in 2000, while the newest (Happy City) was built only five years ago, and most are owned and run by mainland Chinese businessmen.
