Hotel ChelseaA photographer, Christian Belpaire, shot and killed himself as a marshal was trying to evict him from his Chelsea apartment. Belpaire, who did a lot of work in advertising, had kept to himself in the building, but a neighbor mentioned that he had a girlfriend, but she got pregnant then moved out West. According to the Post, it was not clear why Belpaire was being evicted. His apartment, at 208 West 23rd Street, puts him right near the Hotel Chelsea.
