I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel…


Chelsea Hotel, NYC, Room #822.  Madonna’s apartment in the early 80s and she shot photos for her Sex book here too. Isabella Rosselini has also stayed in this room.

The Hotel Chelsea is a well-known residence for artists, musicians and writers in the neighborhood of Chelsea in Manhattan, New York City. It is located at 222 West 23rd Street, between Seventh and Eighth Avenues.  Built in 1883, the hotel originally accommodated both overnight and long-term guests; it is primarily known for its history of long-term residents. The Chelsea has housed numerous writers, musicians, artists, and actors. Notable long-term residents include Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen, Dylan Thomas, Sid Vicious and multiple people associated with Andy Warhol‘s Factory. Currently, the hotel no longer accepts long term residents, with a maximum stay limit of 21 days.  (wikipedia knows best)
