Meanwhile, at the Hotel Chelsea

Saturday night marked the end of an era: the final night for guests at the Hotel Chelsea, headed for a renovation under new owner Joseph Chetrit. The Times and Vanishing New York were on the scene. Jeremiah of VNY spent the evening in a "knock-off Louis XV chair with broken springs and torn velvet, wondering if anyone had died in it?" and listening to the music from a nearby club shake the hotel, "providing a stark glimpse of the Chelsea's future clientele." The night ended with someone smashing a fist through the glass of one first-floor door. [NYT; VNY; previously]
