The Hotel Chelsea—also called the Chelsea Hotel, or simply the Chelsea—once served as a 400-room bohemian enclave for literary luminaries, visionary artists, soul-searching singers, and starry-eyed wannabes. Indeed, in its heyday, the legendary New York City landmark property became a hostelry for a host of creative long-term residents, many of them the celebrities of their day. But notoriety also lodged here, occasions when reputations alone ended up overstaying their welcome.
