Chelsea Hotel (1 Viewer)

This article is about the Chelsea hotel. Buk gets no mention but the whole way through I kept thinking of the room where Pamela Wood almost fell out of the tenth floor window. At the end of the article it mentions a "10th floor room with a lone north facing window." This could have been the room.
Not sure if this is the correct forum to post this.
I stayed at the Chelsea in 1987 for about two weeks when a film company used my apartment building as a movie set and put us up in there for the duration of filming. My room was on the tenth floor.

My favourite reference to the Chelsea Hotel in music:

"I can still hear the sounds of those Methodist bells
I’d taken the cure and had just gotten through
Stayin’ up for days in the Chelsea Hotel
Writin’ 'Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands' for you"

And people say that Bobby only gets confessional on "Blood on the Tracks"...
There was a great documentary on the BBC documentary series Arena about the Chelsea Hotel which included at least a dozen well known cultural figures still alive in 1981. There's an amusing bit where Burroughs and Warhol are having a conversation of sorts and Warhol tells Burroughs that he could be a painter.

Here it is:
