So much history there, some good, some bad, and some downright spooky. Well, sadly, the 'Guiding Spirit' Of The Hotel Chelsea, has died. Gothamist has the report of Stanley Bard, formerly of the board of directors, and friend to about everyone who lived there, famous and not and the long shadow he cast there.
Sid and Nancy? Happened at the Hotel Chelsea, October 12, 1978. Johnny's favorite story of the Chelsea was Soprano's star Michael Imperioli's telling of the time he met Mary. Sleep tight.
Tip one to the Chelsea tonight.
