Hotel Schuyler

Former location –
On Tuesday, Nov. 19, 1968. The Jefferson Airplane became part  of a work-in-progress by the French filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard, tentatively titled One A.M. by performing live on the roof of the Hotel Schuyler. 

Watching the videos linked to below, you can see the surprise on the faces of hotel employees and guests, as well as those on the street as they were serenaded at 7:45 a.m. in the freezing cold by one of the world’s most famous bands of the time. 

Filming was never completed by Godard, but documentarian D.A. Pennebaker , who was asked to help with the filming of the documentary,  finished it himself, retitling it One P.M. It opened a year later, and became a complete and total bomb.

At least there are videos of their performance on YouTube and here as well YouTube.
