Abandoned Chelsea Building Home to (Fake) Murder and Mayhem

New, 3 comments

Is there anything better than photos taken inside an abandoned NYC building? Yes: photos taken inside an abandoned NYC building that's been turned into the set for a "Macbeth meets Hitchcock" theatrical production. That's what actually happened at 530 West 27th Street, which was once the McKittrick Hotel and is now the site of Sleep No More, a show in which audience members wander through a 100-room set spread over 100,000 square feet and five floors. Scouting NY braved the confusion to bring back photos of the reanimated ghost building. His description of the show?"You might stumble on a vicious murder, an orgy (with nudity!), a violent card game, a ball in full swing"?doesn't sound so different from your average abandoned building after all.
