The Chelsea Hotel

Sometimes you read a story that enthralls you so that you simply want to share it.  Other times, you read a quick history lesson and want to share that, too.  Thanks to my friend Tara, I have been introduced to the legend that is The Chelsea Hotel in New York's Chelsea neighborhood, stomping grounds to everyone from Bob Dylan to Mark Twain to Joni Mitchell.  As someone who has only been to Manhattan once (I know...), I was not familiar with the hotel or its history--and a history it has.  Take a look at the hotel's blog and at some of the changes that the hotel is undergoing; seems a shame that the future of such a venerable building and incubator of some of America's great artists is so uncertain.
