Hotel Chelsea Blog Party 2.0

After sitting on the piece for weeks, and after the copy editors drained most of the life out of it, and after the caption editor inserted an error by calling it a “new blog,” the New York Times’ City section finally ran a piece I wrote about the year anniversary party of Living With Legends. Polis readers know I attended the party at the Chelsea Hotel more than a month ago hosted by Debbie Martin and Ed Hamilton, creators of the blog, in an apartment once occupied by Thomas Wolfe. It was a wonderful evening full of rich characters and stories … which sadly, doesn’t quite get fullly conveyed in the piece. I’m probably being a little overly dramatic, so read it for yourself (PDF). And watch a slide show here.
