Kurzbeschreibung

26. März 2015
The Chelsea Hotel, since its founding by a visionary French architect in 1884, has been an icon of American invention: a cultural dynamo and haven for the counterculture, all in one astonishing building. Sherill Tippins, author of the acclaimed February House, delivers a masterful and endlessly entertaining history of the Chelsea and of the successive generations of artists who have cohabited and created there, among them Thomas Wolfe, Dylan Thomas, Arthur Miller, Allen Ginsberg, Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin, Leonard Cohen, Patti Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe, Andy Warhol, Sam Shepard, Sid Vicious, and Dee Dee Ramone. Now as legendary as the artists it has housed and the countless creative collaborations it has sparked, the Chelsea has always stood as a mystery as well: why and how did this hotel become the largest and longest-lived artists' community in the known world? Inside the Dream Palace is the intimate and definitive story.

Pressestimmen

“An inspired investigation into the utopian spirit of the Chelsea Hotel.”
 —ELLE

“Cool hunters will appreciate Sherill Tippins’s Inside the Dream Palace: The Life and Times of New York’s Legendary Chelsea Hotel, a social history of the city’s sanctuary for postwar artists and It girls.”
Vogue

“An amazing history of not only the Chelsea Hotel but New York City itself. Thank you, Sherill Tippins, for this exciting story of how a building became a community and went on to be a legend. Inside the Dream Palace reads like the best fiction and never ever slows down from beginning to end.”
—Country Joe McDonald, activist and lead singer of Country Joe and the Fish

“Zealous, big-picture researcher Tippins not only tells compelling tales, she also weaves them into a strikingly fresh, lucid, and socially anchored history of New York’s world-altering art movements. Though its future is uncertain, Tippins ensures that the Chelsea Hotel, dream palace and microcosm, will live on in our collective memory.”
Booklist, starred

“A revealing biography of the fabled Manhattan hotel, in which generations of artists and writers found a haven...A zesty, energetic history, not only of a building, but of more than a century of American culture.”
—Kirkus

“A fascinating account of how a single building in New York City nurtured a community of freaks, dreamers, and outcasts whose rejection of the status quo helped to transform it.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Not only essential to the understanding of this crucial New York City—and therefore American—cultural landmark but as majestic and populous as the edifice itself, and completely entertaining.”
—Daniel Menaker, author of My Mistake: A Memoir

“New York, the greatest city in the world, has been a magnet for bohemians since it was founded, and the Chelsea Hotel has been Bohemia's home address for more than a century. Sherill Tippins captures the mad magic of this storied building. She has written a history, not just of a hotel, but of a dream: the dream that art can change the world. Her serene and nonjudgmental eye gives coherence and shape to a story that resists any conventional frame. The Chelsea has had its high points and low, supreme artistic achievements and drug-addled suicides, sometimes in the same room. Tippins is an indispensable urban historian; her book is a guide to the lofty aspirations and crashing disappointments of America's artistic avant-garde over the last century and a half. An unforgettable read.”
—Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director, New York Public Theater

“The Chelsea Hotel is so much more than the place where Sid Vicious may or may not have killed his girlfriend; it was a social experiment turned incubator for creativity. It was home for the artists and weirdos that made this city so interesting—famous, infamous, and everything in between. Sherill Tippins has done a masterful job of condensing a history that could be volumes long, into a book that’s enthralling, enlightening and understandably wistful.”
—Judy McGuire, author of The Official Book of Sex, Drugs, and Rock 'n' Roll Lists

4.0 von 5 Sternen Rich in the telling 30. Oktober 2013
Von Eddie Wannabee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
Curious to no end regarding the famous, or infamous, depending on the period of time of the many occurrences that took place at the Chelsea Hotel throughout, I looked forward to this book: Inside the Dream Palace: The Life and Times of New York's Legendary Chelsea Hotel, by a very good writer named Sherill Tippins. To begin with: her command of the language, the number of words I was forced to look at twice, her vast knowledge on the subject, and of course the flow of countless of individuals, characters that lived under such a massive structure, making the place a true unique habitat, make for a serious intriguing read. For some bizarre reason I compared it briefly to the Overlook Hotel from the movie The Shinning, but the Chelsea Hotel, as opposed to the scary empty one in the movie, had so many people of caliber inside its walls, it has created its very own ghost stories today.
I will not attempt to even bring forth a few of the names that sought residence at the Chelsea, but sufficient is to say that there are more than enough to make for a very and varied compelling read. Perhaps that would be my only criticism of this juicy book, too many characters interloping, not one lasting more than a few pages, as the book moves along from the inception of this hotel, once believed to be the very best of New York living almost to the present days.
The abundance of characters, and the passage of time, makes this book one rich experience, so many anecdotes, glimpses at a society that definitely exalted the arts in general, for there were all kinds of talented people roaming the halls, day or night, I am sure. Is like a slide show with narrative of the glorious, and then not so glorious days of such a legendary building.
I found the book more like a train leaving the very first stop, into a never ending road of characters and situations, more entering as others left, and some of the stories truly memorable, especially from the strong poetic population, but not to disregard those of the musicians, captains of industry, directors, writers, etc.
When you have a combination of a great writer, and an extensive subject matter that happens to be all true, you just catch a ride that is truly enjoyable and haunting at the same time. What a unique place, the Chelsea Hotel! Really thanking Amazon for allowing me to read this enthralling book, making me wonder how much would I have given to sublet for a couple of months, or perhaps even more, it don't matter if it was one of the smaller rooms, those that were brought to existence when the hotel was renovated, to increase the number of possible rooms, from the once opulent rooms it was originally known for. 4.5 Stars!

4.0 von 5 Sternen For lovers of culture, New York, weird and wild people and lifestyle 21. November 2013
Von rgregg - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
I had not finished the first chapter of Sherill Tippins' Inside the
Dream Palace before I realized the real estate I have always wanted
was being described. I would have liked one of the beautiful,
original eighty apartments along with the free thinking, artistic
neighbors in the Chelsea Association which later became the Chelsea
Hotel. .

The Chelsea was inspired in part by Charles Fourier, a French utopian
writer. The idea was to design an urban environment that would
attract artists, intellectuals and progressives who would work in a
setting that could inspire creativity and tolerance. The original
apartments were designed both for those with wealth and also those
with more limited means. The experiment worked.

Inside the Dream Palace describes the community that flowered within
the walls of the Chelsea for over a hundred years. The lives of
musicians, writers, artists and actors are chronicled, framed by the
New York City in which they lived. Thomas Wolfe, Mark Twain, Bob
Dylan, Patti Smith, Robert Mapplethorpe, Gore Vidal, Edie Sedgwick,
Sid Vicious and Arthur Miller, along with many others, make
appearances. The influence of the artists on each other both
creative and destructive makes an interesting read. Through the
years they offered each other inspiration and support as well as
possibly a bit too much sex, alcohol and drugs. Their concerns over
income inequality, recessions/depressions and unpopular wars and
foreign involvements unfortunately sounded very current. Tourists,
drug dealers, prostitutes, murderers, along with the eccentric and
those just attracted to the action, all fill out the story. It is a
fascinating, unusual history with the Chelsea as the main character.

This book will appeal to anyone interested in the creative life, urban
planning, sociology, architecture, history and New York City. The
next time I am in town I plan to find the Chelsea, stand at the front
door, and have my picture taken.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazing history of the most fascinating building in America 7. Dezember 2013
Von Pyotr Rusakova - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
Sherill Tippins has done the world a great favor with this important book about what I would call America's most interesting building. The Chelsea Hotel has surely housed more talented, innovative and fascinating people than any other residence on earth. I read Ed Hamilton's wonderful book "Legends of the Chelsea Hotel" a few years ago and came to appreciate the incredible quirkiness of the Chelsea, but Tippins' new book expands on Hamilton's entertaining book to give us a fuller view of the historical importance of the Chelsea.

Tippins' research is obviously exhaustive and her integrity as a writer is at the top of the heap. I'm a librarian and I can't recall the last time I have been this impressed with the scholarly research that went into creating this work. There are many tall tales about the Chelsea that are not completely true, and Tippins does not include any of the unproven tales. She sticks to the facts. If you see it here, it is so.

As big as this book is, I can't help but hope for a second volume. There are so many interesting tales to tell about the Chelsea that I bet Tippins could fill up another huge book or two. I selfishly hope she will go for Volume 2 of "Inside the Dream Palace" one day!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Dream Weavers 19. Dezember 2013
Von Melanie Gilbert - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
People who share a common vision or destiny are strengthened by forming communities in which their work and beliefs are supported and sustained. Many of these movements are religiously based such as the Amish, Mennonites, or Hare Krishnas. Secular movements that adopt a community-based lifestyle are harder to maintain on a broad scale because competing interests - like sex, money, and power - make coalescing around a common core more complicated.

The Chelsea Hotel was a unique and beautiful exception to this rule. Despite vast differences in race and gender, age and income, education and experience, money and power, the Chelsea Hotel community was bound by one thing: talent. Even the talent was expressed in widely divergent ways. Yet, for almost 100 years, this diverse energy found a place to call home at the Dream Palace.

Sherill Tippins's opus pays homage to the idea that ideas can form powerful and perpetuating communities of believers. Emerson or Thoreau would have called the Chelsea Hotel home. Remarkably, Tippins also shows how outside influences and competing interests strengthened the intimate bonds between the Chelsea believers while propelling their creative work beyond its walls.

The Chelsea Hotel was both a cultural and artistic incubator. Writers, musicians, graphic artists, filmmakers, actors and avant garde adventurists mixed in amongst regular people in the heart of New York City. Religious-type fervor within a secular, and sometimes sinful environment, somehow produced enduring art. The Chelsea Hotel was both wicked and wonderful - and so is this book. Highly recommend it.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Thorough and Worth the Read 11. Dezember 2013
Von Kevin Fontenot - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
“Inside the Dream Palace: The Life and Times of New York’s Legendary Chelsea Hotel” is a thorough, engrossing history of one of New York City’s most iconic hotels. Combining a single building’s architectural history with a social history of its inhabitants is no easy feat, and this book manages to do it extremely well. The characters who inhabited the hotel come to life within its pages, and the building itself remains central to the story. From nineteenth century society to early twentieth century literary figures, the Beat Generation, to the Warhol “superstars” to the shocking murder of Nancy Spungen and beyond, a great deal of historical context is provided for the hotel’s place in American society – which illustrates its importance all the more. The book has extensive notes and detailed illustrations which provide eeven more depth.

Sherill Tippins should also be commended for delving deeper into the earlier history of the building and its curious patrons, rather than spotlighting the more recent, lurid history. Through this book, she shows us that the Chelsea Hotel is a valuable component of New York history. The Chelsea is a beautiful building with a long, storied past, a strong presence today (even as its doors are closed), and, with the anticipated success of this important historical account, a hopeful future.
