• “Although the Chelsea Hotel was a thriving creative haven, it was also be a place where one could disappear. I created this composition to convey the feeling of isolation that someone might feel there. This rather plain room is down the hall from Room 100 where Sid Vicious is said to have murdered Nancy Spungen. Room 100 was closed after the incident, never to be seen again.” Image from Hotel Chelsea by Victoria Cohen
  • “This room was on the Fourth floor where Leonard Cohen and Janis Joplin had an affair, though both were staying in separate rooms. Cohen wrote about their affair in his song Chelsea Hotel #2, though in 1994, he said he regretted his indiscretion in linking her name to the song. This 4th floor piano made me think of the many songs and scores created at the Chelsea.” Image from Hotel Chelsea by Victoria Cohen
