We may be waiting a while for the Hotel Chelsea to reopen – 2016 if the updated website is anything to go by, though the new logo still says 2015, and we wouldn’t be surprised if it took longer – but the spirit of the place has just returned to the Hotel Chelsea Storefront Gallery, with the opening of a Dee Dee Ramone exhibition.
Dee Dee, of course, was the author of Chelsea Horror Hotel: A Novel, a semi-autobiographical novel about the hotel. The exhibition has been curated by his estate; on display are Dee Dee’s records, clothes (leopard-print robe FTW) and, more importantly, art – paintings, drawings and cartoon strips. Although you may want to visit on an empty stomach; according to Newsweek:
If you truly want to know what a blonde bombshell looks like, then head over to the Sofitel New York where they are showcasing the “BB Forever-Brigitte Bardo, The Legend” exhibit until December 31.
Displayed all around the downstairs lobby and throughout certain rooms are 30 of many never-seen-before photos of Bardot, the French actress who appeared on the Hollywood scene in the 1950’s and became an all-around sex symbol who captured the hearts of many.
