During the Chelsea Hotel’s heyday in the ’60s and ’70s, the only question was: Who hadn’t spent the night there? Bob Dylan, Arthur Miller, Edie Sedgwick, Leonard Cohen, and, of course, Sid and Nancy were just a few of the hotel’s regulars. In honor of its 125th anniversary, current hotel resident and photographer Linda Troeller has put together an exhibit titled Chelsea Hotel Through the Eyes of Photographers, featuring work by more than 50 artists whose photos range from historic images of the residents to atmospheric shots of the hotel itself. Today is the last chance to catch the three-day show, which includes portraits of Dee Dee Ramone, Andy Warhol, Patti Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe, and Ethan Hawke.
