Hello from Pennsylvania!!
I have been an avid follower of the blog for quite sometime and am always disheartened by the stories of mis-management at the Chelsea. It has been my dream to stay there, but I have avoided it because of my extreme dislike for what Krauss and Elder have done to this special place.
I recently had a last minute meeting scheduled for Friday night in the city. Since it was going to be a late night, I decided to stay. When pricing out hotels Thursday night, guess which hotel came up cheapest?? That's right - the grand Chelsea!! (I was even planning on staying in Brooklyn to get a good rate!)
I booked my room with a shared bath for $99.00 for the night. When I arrived Friday, they had sold my room to someone else, so I was upgraded to a room with a private bath for the same price. The desk clerk was overly friendly, which was better than I expected.
As an energy worker, I may be a bit more attuned to energy frequencies in people and in areas. The destruction of the hotel (Bob Dylan's room, mailboxes removed from the lobby) is nothing short of tragic and I expected to pick up a strong, negative energy brought in my Krauss and Elder.
Instead, I picked up a strong, yet subtle, energy that defines what the Chelsea was, is, and always will be. It gave me great hope that the Chelsea will continue to thrive and that karma (and the Universe) will give Krauss and Elder what they truly deserve.
So I am writing to say keep up the good fight, no matter how difficult it seems! The night is always darkest before the dawn.
Love and Peace~
