We get tips about all kinds of collectibles becoming available. One of the more unique ones came our way recently. On April 12 in New York, Guernsey's Auction House will make available 50 doors to 50 rooms at the fabled Chelsea Hotel it has traced to having been lived in by a number of iconic figures, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Bob Dylan, Jack Kerouac, Humphrey Bogart, Jackson Pollack, Andy Warhol and Mark Twain. The residential hotel has been closed since 2011 and is now under renovation with a planned reopening slated for 2019.
The doors will be on display at the Ricco/Maresca Gallery at 529 West 20th St. from April 5-11. The auction takes place on April 12. Opening bids are 5k for each.
