Death of a Salesman's Hotel Room

The Hotel Chelsea had some splainin' to do when Bob Dylan's old room in the bohemian landmark was improperly gutted, and now Living With Legends suspects chicanery in the work going on in the room where playwright Arthur Miller lived: "In their applications for flooring, kitchen, and bathroom renovations, they falsely state that the Chelsea is not an SRO building, when in fact it is. They further falsely state that the hotel does not contain rent stabilized units, when in fact it does. This allows the hotel to avoid the requirement that they obtain a Certificate of No Harassment—which, due to ongoing harassment, they'll never get in a million years." [LWL; previously]
