Today is the 29th anniversary of Nancy Spungen’s brutal murder in room 100 of the Chelsea Hotel. Whether or not you believe Sid killed her, the spirits of this tragic, doomed couple continue to haunt us here at the Chelsea. When the elevator stops mysteriously on the 1st floor, the door opening upon an empty hallway, resident’s joke nervously that it’s Sid’s ghost getting on. But we are haunted by their lingering presence in other, more insidious, ways as well. This video, shot in 2006, tells the story of punk rocker Dee Dee Ramone’s disturbing late-night encounter with the shadowy trace of the horrific event that occurred in room 100 way back in 1978.
