Walking east on 23rd Street, I noticed a historic hotel I recognized from the movies. Stepping inside, the boutique hotel greeted me with art and architecture — a far cry from the typical corporate chains with generic decorations.
It wasn’t until I looked up the history of Hotel Chelsea that I discovered its phenomenal connection with the creative community. A mind-boggling collection of artists, authors, and musicians lived and worked there. Arthur C. Clarke wrote 2001: A Space Odyssey at the Chelsea, which is my favorite historical tidbit. The building, completed in 1885, was the tallest in New York.
I found this YouTube video from B&H Photo with a lecture by photographer and former Hotel Chelsea resident Linda Troeller. It features historical photos and stories of artists and creatives in residence
