Staying up for Days in the Chelsea Hotel

chelseaI’ve never stayed at the famed Chelsea Hotel, where many artists, poets, and musicians have lived, including Allen Ginsberg, Patti Smith, Harry Smith, and, of course, Bob Dylan.

In fact last weekend may have been the very first time I even saw it from the outside.  I immediately walked inside and booked a reservation for a few nights beginning tomorrow (Sunday, Nov 13), as I need to be in New York City anyway on Monday night.

Needless to say, I’m very excited about my trip to New York and my stay at the Chelsea. I don’t plan to do much more while I’m there than soak in the atmosphere inside the hotel and outside in the immediate neighborhood, which I’ve never really explored (my travels simply have never led me to that part of Manhattan).

I’m bringing my camera and laptop, of course, and I hope to post regular updates and photos in the form of this Chelsea Hotel diary.

If you are in New York City and are going to be around, please let me know, and maybe we can hang out there together and talk Dylan.
