We stole our headline from Jeremiah's Vanishing New York. Jeremiah's brillant idea is to call for a "Die in" at the Chelsea Hotel tonight at 8 pm to coincide with Patti Smith's proposed concert in the Chelsea Hotel ballroom (Richard Bernstein's former apt.). Patti played last night for the developers and their friends. And tonight she is going to try to get the tenants on board with the developers program whatever it is. While the concert is going on with probably very few if any residents in attendance protesters will meet outside the Chelsea Hotel, raise lit lighters, and recite the lycris of Patti's song "People Have the Power". Bring umbrellas in case of rain. There may be other protests going on as well. Stay tuned. Details about the Flash Mob "Die in" are here and here.UPDATE: "DIE IN" logo has been provided by one of the Hotel's artist-in-residence.
