No Room on the Inn! »

: it’s against zoning laws. the Chelsea Hotel is already as big and beautiful as she needs to be.

and p.s. no one in the Hotel (and most people outside of it) want it.

“‘The hotel is already overbuilt, so there’s no room for a rooftop additional at the hotel,’ said CB4 Chair Corey Johnson at last week’s full board meeting.

big yay to tremendous support from the Chelsea’s hero politicians, Corey Johnson and Christine Quinn!

: the future of the Chelsea Hotel???

don’t get me wrong, i love a swanky rooftop bar on any night of the summer, but this just seems wrong. let alone if you imagine it on the historic roof of our beloved Chelsea Hotel…

does it even look that much fun?

: more video of the Chelsea from the Gothamist. residents rooftop gardens and homes facing devastation.

this beautiful place is what developers want to destroy by putting a stereotypical bar up there. how can we stand by and let this happen?
