Anyway... I've stayed there twice (or maybe three times.. am not sure), the last time round about in 2005 (actually, I put a bit more thought into this and I think it was 2007). I love it there, I love the fadedness of it and the fact that loads of famous awesome people have stayed there (bob dylan, leonard cohen, dylan thomas, thomas wolfe, vali myers and many more).
Here are some of my pictures which I've had to rephotograph to put here...
that's me in the mirror
photos in my photo album
love the stairways...and all the paintings
how nice is that bed and the bedding?
I've also been looking online for hotel chelsea photos and collected a few on a board on pinterest, and the following photos are all from there.
love this picture - it's views from the window of the chelsea
Ryan Adams at the chelsea...while I was there I probably looked just as cool...
me at the chelsea.... just kidding - I'm a brunette
and Ethan Hawke at the Chelsea. He was staying there when I was there and I did wonder if maybe we would start an affair.... I hung out in the lobby reading Philip Roth because I thought he might like that and strike up a conversation with me. I didn't see him.
