Pay Your Respects To Leonard Cohen At The Chelsea Hotel

by Stephanie Maida · November 11, 2016

Last night the world lost yet another music icon. Leonard Cohen, a profound poet, passed at 82 years old. A musician on par with Bob Dylan, he also famously spent time at the Chelsea Hotel in New York City, penning the song, "Chelsea Hotel No. 2," rumored to be about a rendezvous with Janis Joplin. Though he hailed from Canada, it's no wonder New Yorkers have adopted him as one of their own, today creating a makeshift memorial for Cohen outside of the hotel. In the mood to blast "Hallelujah" and leave some flowers? This is the place for it.
