Does Cara Buckley's article in the NYTimes (12/8/10) get it right on the money? Are we really going to go "quietly into the night?" Is this the end of the line for the Chelsea Hotel's famous spirit of non-conformity and resistance? Even if Michael Musto is right that our "legend has been slowly evaporating," has it really dissipated entirely? When did we lose our famous ability to "inspire terror in the streets'? Are New Yorkers "shrugging" at our plight out of unconcern or bewilderment? How will history remember the present tenants?
