Address: 222 West 23rd St.
The Hotel Chelsea has a storied past, and has been a frequented by the likes of the many celebrities, including Patti Smith, Bob Dylan, Jimi Hendrix, and Andy Warhol. However, its legacy is just as ugly as it is star-studded. The Chelsea has been the site of several infamous celebrity deaths, specifically those of poet/writer Dylan Thomas and Sid Vicious' girlfriend Nancy Spungen. Spungen was found dead in a hotel room with Sid Vicious, and he was summarily arrested for her murder. He overdosed on heroin before he could stand trial, and it is said that the ghosts of the lovers haunt the floors. Sweet, right?
Thomas, a famous alcoholic, appears near room 206, the very place he died in 1953.
