The Hotel Chelsea is closing. Here's an article in The New York Times about it.
I've been staying there this year while I look for an apartment. I even threw a fabulous party there back in March. Yao Xiao immortalized the party with her drawing (see below). The party was held in the large one bedroom, room 103, where Sid and Nancy once infamously stayed - and Nancy died. Here's a picture of Liz and Katelan at the party. Katelan wrote a blog post about it. I've also had a few slumber parties there. Here's a video from one.
If any of my friends had additional pictures from this party send them along and I'll post them.
