Chelsea Folk Claim Club Allowed Beatdowns in Front of Hotel
The Hotel Chelsea Blog today complains that there have been a number of violent incidents out in front of the Star Lounge, which is located in the basement of the famous hotel. Previously residents had mainly complained that the place was tacky, but Chelsea Blog posts grainy photos that a "tipster" insist shows "assailants" who "accost" people in front of the club while club and hotel security look on.
The blog says residents have petitioned for an end of the club's residency, but to no avail. "They never corrected the noise problem," comments one resident. "So I doubt they'll correct the problems with Security until somebody gets killed."
