“This Ain’t No Holiday Inn: Down and Out in the Chelsea Hotel 1980-1995,” a book written by writing professor James Lough, has been published by Shaffner Press. The nonfiction book, funded in part by a SCAD Presidential Fellowship, explores the Chelsea Hotel and its ascent to epitomize the lively and decadent world of New York’s artistic fringe, serving as a safe haven for writers, artists, musicians and eccentrics.

“This Ain’t No Holiday Inn: Down and Out in the Chelsea Hotel 1980-1995” was released Monday, July 1.
