Chelsea Hotel - Creatives & Domestic Discontent

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

 I investigated the price of hotels. It was at the Chelsea , in Manhattan, that so many creatives bunked. Those included Patti Smith. They weren't distracted by domesticity. And likeminded souls were all around. They could focus exclusively on their work. I got my first taste of that kind of life when I hung out at an extended stay motel in Rhode Island as I blogged a four-month class action lawsuit.

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

As the New York Post reports, just before noon, a man jumped from the luxury Royalton Park Avenue Hotel. Manhattan continually is the setting for suicides involving leaps from tall buildings. Today, not surprisingly, the tragedy again happened. He was declared dead at the scene. As yet his identity is unknown.    Why is this such as common method of taking one's own life?

Manhattan for Suicide Tourism - Women Plunges from Midtown 1 Hotel

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

Today, a woman, reports the New York Pos t, has plunged from 1 Hotel in Midtown. Can engineers and psychiatrists join forces and prevent Manhattan from continuing to be the go-to location for Suicide Tourism? For example, they might identify the prime high buildings and train platforms which are used by those determined to end their lives. Then, create effective barriers. The apparent tactics to prevent this death didn't work.

"The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" - Starting over

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  Of course, nothing is as they expect when they come to the run-down hotel.    The enterprising hotel owner jokes that he is going to start a service through which other nations can outsource their elderly to India. Mostly because of financial circumstances, a bunch of British pensioners respond to an ad about retiring in India.    Only one takes that road less traveled because he needs to make peace with the gay Indian lover from his youth.

Not Quite Golden: Never made it to Chelsea Hotel

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  In music and writing, one of those had been being part of the ethos at the Chelsea Hotel.  Different professions have different markers for success.    Now, those of us in the arts who are not quite golden and never penetrated that atmosphere never will.    The place closed down to guests. Immediately on hearing that news, I took out my meditation book "Nothing Special: Living Zen" by Charlotte Joko Beck.

Hotel Chelsea Isn't accepting Any More Long-term Guests: So, make your own writing hide-out

Jane Genova: Speechwriter - Ghostwriter

  Hotel Chelsea , where Dylan Thomas and Allen Ginsberg used to write, isn't accepting any more long-term residents.   There is a sofa from Hotel Liquidators for my feline companion Jason.  Before I created my own writing hide-out six years ago, it was a roll of the dice (luck) whether or not I would get anything done.    Or if it would be good.    All writers are now forced to develop their own space.

Speaker Sue’s Winning Formula for Email Success

SpeakerSue Says...

It’s not your hotel’s super-sized safety protocols that matter; it’s how safe their participants feel about attending the event, connecting and doing business while there. Business is booking. Are you getting your fair share (and more)? Did I just hear you mutter, “I wish”? Hmmm… please know it’s not likely your venue, offer or rate that isn’t right (though it’s easy to think that). It’s much more likely to be your outreach and follow-up.
