Things could be worse: You could be staying at the Chelsea Hotel, where many a deceased famous figure is said to dwell. Dylan Thomas, Eugene O'Neill and Thomas Wolfe have all been spotted in spirit form. Be particularly careful when you ride the elevator: The ghost of Sid Vicious (the Sex Pistols bassist who died of a heroin overdose) is reported to linger on the elevator.
If you'd rather not visit the Chelsea, you can always get a glimpse of its impact on artists of the era: Leonard Cohen wrote the song "Chelsea Hotel" and Andy Warhol made the film "Chelsea Girl" to commemorate the seediness of this establishment. Or visit the hotel online. Living With Legends: Hotel Chelsea Blog is all about the past (and present) Chelsea Hotel and veers into nostalgic remembrances of its bohemian days.
