Curbed.com Picks up Virtual Chelsea Story!!

Hotel Chelsea's Metaverse
Tuesday, April 28, 2009, by Lockhart

Beyond the surprising news that people still hang out in the interactive world of Second Life, there's the equally surprising tidbit that the Hotel Chelsea is nearly perfectly represented inside its virtual environment. Blogger Jeremiah Moss talked to its creator and reports thusly: "We chatted a bit about the vanishing city. About places like CBGB—which also used to have a replica in Second Life (that's where my avatar got his souvenir t-shirt), but that vanished, too. 'Of course,' Mykal said, 'we can always go to Vegas to experience New York.'" [Vanishing NY]
