Notorious as a refuge for the eccentric, the eclectic, and the creative, the Hotel Chelsea has been home to some of the great and unconventional writers, musicians, artists, and actors of the past century, including Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, and Allen Ginsburg.

When the hotel was closed for renovation in 2011, American photographer Victoria Cohen was able to document the building's original interiors. Her photographs of the hallways, lobbies, and rooms illuminate a bohemian era that once was, and gives a rare and intimate look into this historic and fascinating structure.
