For now, we can feel more a part of what goes on day to day there at The Hotel Chelsea's blog, called Living with Legends. It's been around since last July and reports on daily happenings in the Hotel, around the Hotel and tidbits about its past, present and future. Recently they pointed out a 1900's Hotel Chelsea brochure on ebay. It's up to $44.50 now, that's $43 more than it cost for a room there at the time the brochure was printed.

I love hotels to which, at four a.m., you can bring along a midget, a bear and four ladies, drag them to your room and no one cares about it at all." That's all we're lookin' for...
