Bob Marley, Bob Dylan, Lee Jaffee
Bob Marley and his friend, an artist and musician named Lee Jaffee, lived in this room between 1970 and 1971. Bob Dylan, singer-songwriter and author, lived in room 211 in the 1960s. He wrote the song “Sara,” in this room. The song was written to his first wife Sara Lownds, and mentions the hotel: “Â–Staying up for days in the Chelsea hotel/ writing Â• Sad Eyed Lady of the Lowlands’ for you.Â” Also, apparently another Chelsea resident, Dylan Thomas, inspired Dylan to change his last name from Zimmerman.
This door has been consigned by Mr. Jim Georgiou, an accomplished man who had been a previous tenant at the Chelsea (along with his dog, Teddy). Unfortunately, Jim ended up having to leave his beloved home at the hotel, winding up on the street. During this time, he would occasionally return to the Chelsea, to use the restrooms. This was during the beginnings of the renovations on the building. It was as a result of one of these forays into the Chelsea that Jim recovered the doors. Mr. Georgiou recognized the doors’ importance as symbols of the accomplished and controversial figures that lived in the hotel when it was a bohemian haven.
Jim Georgiou is now no longer without a home, but certainly remembers his time on the streets. Per his request, a portion of the proceeds from the auction of the doors will go to City Harvest, the non-profit organization that pioneered food rescue in 1982. This year, City Harvest will rescue 59 million pounds of nutritious food and deliver it to 500 community food programs across New York City, helping to feed the nearly 1.3 million New Yorkers facing hunger.
The attributions of the Doors of the Chelsea to their associated icons have been made based on extensive research, both of material written on the figures of the Chelsea, as well as interviews with previous residents and employees of the Hotel. Many of these attributions are borne out by various sources, and are confirmed almost beyond a doubt. Some are based upon knowledge of where in the hotel a figure was staying, and can be considered ‘looser’ attributions. Door measures 94 x 36”.
