This was interesting as well as new information to me (and I live in New York City). I knew about the rock 'n roll and other artistic connections to the Chelsea Hotel, but these stories about The Gramercy were new to me. Perhaps I need to get out more?

I learned about The Gramercy firsthand when I was working with The Clash filming their stint at Bond's in 1981. It was quite a scene and very accommodating of the different needs among the band members. We shot a number of scenes in the hotel and it was never an issue. In 1996 The Gramercy hosted an art fair and that was unique for the time.


It's better to regret something you have done, than something you haven't done.
