Art at the Chelsea Hotel.

The poet Dylan Thomas drank himself to death here in 1953 and Sid Vicious stabbed Nancy Spungen to death here in 1978.

Arthur Clarke wrote 2001: A Space Odyssey here.

A couple of the Hotel's permanent residents have a blog called Living With Legends, which is a great way to keep up with the hotel, hear about the new Abel Ferrara movie being filmed there, and read bitter commentary about its unwelcome new management.

The New York Observer has an article about the new management, in which it calls the new manager a "baby dictator."
