Nick Ray at the Chateau Marmont
Andy Romanoff

The Chateau Marmont is basically considered a haunted spot in Hollywood. I guess it’s been gussied up and is open for those who have hipness pretense going on.

It was well known over 30 years ago what kinds of stuff happened there (like the Chelsea in NY) but the Marmont copped a kind of evil rep by the time I was an adolescent in 70’s LA. Lots of somewhat negative stuff has happened there. It’s no Continental Riot House. I am surprised people still go, but that’s LA — the hip and wealthy were packing their homes with stolen New Orleans cemetery artifacts a few years ago. City of night indeed.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
