Florence Turner was a resident for over 10 years and she has plenty of anecdotes. She drops a whole lot of names, even when she doesn't have a tale to tell about a particular person. I bought this used and was glad I didn't spend much on it. The best things about it are that Turner is a good writer and her own dramas while living at the Chelsea play an important part in holding the reader's interest.

This book is now little-known, and it should be on the top of everyone's Chelsea Hotel list. I bought my copy at the front desk, before Amazon! Turner lived at the Chelsea during its great years and writes wonderfully about it. It is a memoir, not a comprehensive history -- for that, I recommend Inside the Dream Palace by Tippins.

I'm very grateful to have lived at the Chelsea. Now it is gone forever, but fortunately there are good books and films about it.

I've been looking for a book that covers the history of the Chelsea Hotel in detail. This isn't it, but it is one facet of the much larger story. Florence Turner was a resident for over 10 years and she has plenty of anecdotes. She drops a whole lot of names, even when she doesn't have a tale to tell about a particular person. There's poor editing (names are misspelled, and she even refers to a band called "The Almond Brothers") and the book is short. I bought this used and was glad I didn't spend much on it. The best things about it are that Turner is a good writer and her own dramas while living at the Chelsea play an important part in holding the reader's interest.

That's the way it was and I was there...

The Chelsea hotel, that is. At least per a NYT article two days ago. Closing, perhaps to be re-opened and no doubt without the ambiance that made it a haven for so many artists over the last century. The NYT article inexplicable focused on Sid Vicious' killing of his girlfriend at the hotel. On a much higher plain, as it were, is Leonard Cohen's eponymous song, and his recall of (the unnamed in the song) Janis Joplin, demonstrating her, er, ah, affection, as the "limousine waited in the street."

The Chelsea is an American bohemian icon, whose residents and visitors are a veritable who's who, of the artistic and literary world and included: Bob Dylan, Joan Baez, Patti Smith, Dylan Thomas, Thomas Wolfe, Sarah Bernhardt, Andy Warhol, Theodore Dreiser, Robert Oppenheimer, Arthur C. Clarke, the Jefferson Airplane, and on and on. The hotel's fame has spawned several books. This is one of the delightful ones. In retrospect, Florence Turner got her timing right: she moved in in 1964. This memoir, with social history, covers the hotel "traffic" until 1973.

For those who lived through this period of change, hope, and finally despair, the book is drenched in nostalgia. Turner wrote the book in 1986, giving the events a certain distance. She set the tone with a chapter on music and the associated happenings. The next chapter caught the "underbelly" of the era, with artists and pushers. Because there always was a criminal element that sought to blend in with the more noble pursuits. My favorite chapter, anticipating Marquez, is "Love in a Changing Climate."

The book tended to be more of a catalogue of events and happenings, choke full of names, yet lacking in fundamental insight. I would have greatly appreciated just a "flake" from the lives of Cohen and Joplin, but, alas, no, they were only walk-ons, as were so many others. Turner aroused higher hopes, with an epigraph from Maxim Gorky, who, after saying that he preferred not the "achieved man" but rather: "A man slightly possessed is not only more agreeable to me; he is altogether more plausible, more in harmony with the general tune of life, a phenomenon unfathomed yet, and fantastic, which makes it at the same time so confoundedly interesting." And all too apt description to those who made the Chelsea home or a rest stop.

Finally, just as Turner completed the book, I too made Chelsea an annual rest stop. The neighborhood, tree-lined and all, not the hotel, only a couple blocks away. And the folks who ran that other "hotel" would easily have been in Gorky's preferable category. And so it goes. 4-stars.
