    New Waterfront Hotel Breaks Ground in O.C., Part 2

    The location of a new waterfront hotel that recently broke ground in Ocean City is raising some eyebrows with neighbors in the downtown area.

    Brian Plimack, who lives just behind the development, said the hotel is too much of a drastic change to the town's skyline.
