This time the haunted atmosphere of the official "Sid & Nancy room" was captured by the quick pen and pad of Chelsea Hotel guests,Ian & Jo Dennis. In addition, Ian and Jo have a question for the readers of this blog: Does the wallpaper in the Sid photo (below) match the (still hanging) curtains in the front room? We spotted the similarity while looking for a reference pic for the drawing. Does anyone know? (and does anyone care?) Well, perhaps Sid's ghost influenced the decorator to use a similar theme. Or, maybe Nancy's ghost was more concerned with the decor.
Alan G. Parker's movie Who Killed Nancy? is now showing at the Cinema Village on West 12th Street. We Wonder if Michael, one of the possible suspects identified in the movie, made it to the opening? After all, he may still be living here at the Chelsea Hotel. You can read the reviews here: New York Times, Vanity Fair, Blog Critics.
