Hotel Chelsea
The Hotel Chelsea isn't just the ideal place for artists to hang out, it's also a historic landmark in New York pop culture history. It's where Sid Vicious' lady love, Nancy Spungeon, died as well as writer Dylan Thomas. Andy Warhol's pals shacked up here, including model Edie Sedgwick. And it's the place where any artist or writer wants to live. The lobby walls are filled with paintings from its inhabitants. And it's right across the street from Krispy Kreme donuts, so what more could you want?
