Reviews

"...A heartfelt celebration of the Chelsea as it is today."
-Aimee Farrell, T: The New York Times Style Magazine

"...A big, colorful celebration of more than two dozen residents, their living spaces and their stories."
-Katherine Roth, Associated Press

"A behind-the-scenes look into the hotly contested battle to preserve one of New York's most storied residences."
-Geoffrey Montes, Galerie Magazine

"The book beautifully captures around half of the remaining residents and their apartments, many of which feature layers of fabrics, art, wallpaper, textures, and a life lived-a maximalist aesthetic you might expect to find there, and a storied tapestry you would never find at a regular hotel. These are the apartments of New Yorkers-collectors of life, eccentric devotees of the city, haters of a cookie cutter. Their homes will soon live in stark contrast to the hotel rooms being built around them for tourists."
-Jen Carlson, Gothamist

"An ode to the Gilded Age residency in the new millennium."
-Sara Rosen, Feature Shoot

"While times have changed, Mock and Miller discovered through documenting the intimate lives of these stalwart residents that the hotel's bohemian spirit still prevailed. Their book, Hotel Chelsea: Living in the Last Bohemian Haven, opens a window into this world, featuring the quirky decor and style of these New York aesthetes with their equally colorful and eccentric lives."
-Laura Powers,
"...Hotel Chelsea: Living in the Last Bohemian Haven, is part love letter to the bygone spirit of the hotel and part awareness campaign, offering insight into the complicated socio-economic dynamics of the hotel's current iteration."
-Julia Brenner Forbes
