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.

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.
