The Hotel Chelsea
This artist friendly and historically rich piece of property was sold for a reported 80+ million. If there was baby book somewhere for the city of New York, The Hotel Chelsea would be under Babies First Steps.(picture here)This was the second home to the creative and the poor, the rich and the coddled. With so much life and energy pouring through that place I believe it's safe to say, there is no way in hell the spirits that haunt Chelsea will let the workers get anything done. Nancy Spungen will be squawking and bitching in the ears of electricians and Dylan Thomas will be preaching his "Do not go gentle into that good night.." shpeel to some poor bloke with a blow torch. I wish them luck and bid The Chelsea a hasty adieu, funny, I have never been there yet have such fond memories of it.
