An Oral History of the Chelsea Hotel: Where the Walls Still Talk

The Chelsea Hotel: The infamous Chelsea Hotel in New York City is one of the area's spookiest landmarks. Built in 1884, the hotel has been home to many notable writers, musicians and artists over the years. Even though many of its most famous occupants have since died, visitors claim to have spotted the apparitions of Dylan Thomas, Eugene O'Neil and Thomas Wolfe.
