Hotel Chelsea er et meget kendt hotel i New York. Kendt for at mange kendte bor eller har boet her under deres ophold i byen.
Selv skriver de flg. på deres hjemmeside (www.hotelchelsea.com):
Owing to its long list of famous guests and residents, the hotel has an ornate history, both as a birth place of creative modern art and home of bad behavior. Bob Dylan composed songs while staying at the Chelsea, and poets Allen Ginsberg and Gregory Corso chose it as a place for philosophical and intellectual exchange. It is also known as the place where the writer Dylan Thomas died of alcohol poisoning on in 1953, and where Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols may have stabbed his girlfriend, Nancy Spungen, to death on October 12, 1978.
Famous visitors and residents of the Chelsea Hotel include Eugene O’Neil, Thomas Wolfe, and Arthur C. Clarke (who wrote 2001: A Space Oddyssey while in residence). Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and the Grateful Dead passed through the hotels doors in the 1960s.
Virgil Thompson, Larry Rivers, William Burroughs, Willem de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Patti Smith, Arthur Miller, Dylan Thomas, Quentin Crisp, and many, many others stayed here too.
og iflg. Wikipedia, har mange flere boet her også.
Hotel Chelsea er i 12 etager og med sin meget markante røde mursten, er den en utrolig flot og imponerende bygning. Hotellet ligger på adressen 222 West 23rd Street (between 7th and 8th Avenues).
Jeg har ikke selv ophold mig her under mine besøg i New York, derfor kan jeg ikke fortælle så meget om hvordan stedet er, men jeg kan rigtig godt lide historien om stedet og syntes det er en smuk bygning.
