No Space, Just a Place. Eterotopia
It’s been five decades since Apollo 8 astronaut William Anders photographed Earth peaking over the Moon’s horizon. The iconic image, dubbed Earthrise, inspired a new appreciation of the fragility of our place in the universe. Two years later, Earth Day was born to honor our home planet. As the world prepares to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day, NASA reflects on how the continued growth of its fleet of Earth-observing satellites has sharpened our view of the planet’s climate, atmosphere, land, polar regions and oceans.

“The Chelsea Hotel may be the only Manhattan lodging space famous for its grit rather than its glamour. Even as only a few of the establishment’s neon letters are lit at night, it remains a solid New York City tourist attraction, drawing all those curious about the infamous Nancy Spungen murder or their favorite Leonard Cohen lyric. Today, few tenants from that raucous era remain, and the hotel is now being renovated into an artist-friendly luxury hotel. As an accompaniment to Nathaniel Rich’s oral history of the Chelsea, we bid farewell to the former Chelsea with a photographic tour inside its storied hallways.” — Alex Beggs Vanity Fair | photos by Robert Polidori
