A few nights at the Chelsea


Sunday, 17 July 2011

Before it closed for renovations in August, I was lucky enough to stay at the bohemian, boutique Hotel Chelsea, on West 22rd Street in Manhattan.

Officially there for business meetings, I had a chance to check out the priceless art that hangs on the walls throughout the hotel.

The Hotel Chelsea, also known as the Chelsea Hotel, or simply the Chelsea, is a historic New York City hotel and landmark, known primarily for its history of notable residents. The hotel has been the home of numerous writers, musicians, artists, and actors, including Bob Dylan, Virgil Thomson, Charles Bukowski, Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, Jobriath, and Larry Rivers.

The landing outside my room, with a rare original painting by Vali Myers

Was it luck or fate that the reason I chose to stay at the Chelsea was Vali Myers’ own recollection of it when meeting her in 1993, only to find myself on the same floor as one of her paintings?
