Marking a quarter century of continuous business — and located at the crossroads of Cheslea, the Meatpacking District, and the Village — Chelsea Pines Inn has certainly witnessed an awful lot of gay history in the making.
Its recently launched silver annivesary blog is chock full of great tidbits and terrific contributors, like Terrence McNally and Armistead Maupin (pictured, left).
Other noteworthy New Yorkers who’ve contributed to the blog include:
- Tom Viola, Executive Director of Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS (BC/EFA); and
- Glennda Testone, Executive Director, The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center
- Tom Kirdahy, on the Board of the LGBT Center among many other accomplishments.
Oh and yours truly! I was asked to submit a blog as a travel writer who has covered the inn for years.
