[WATCH] Peek Inside One of the Last Bohemian Homes at the Chelsea Hotel

Artist and hairdresser Gerald DeCock has been living in the Hotel Chelsea for the past 25 years. He is one of about 50 remaining residents in this storied hotel, which, in its heyday, was home to cultural greats such as Andy Warhol, Patti Smith, and Jim Morrison.

Today, the hotel is undergoing its 8th year of renovations before it’s transformed into a luxury hotel. Photographer Colin Miller captured DeCock’s delirious loft (and those of other residents) for a new book, Hotel Chelsea. We met up with both of them for a tour of DeCock’s apartment and insight into what it’s like in the last haven standing for the city’s bohemian coterie.
