NEW YORK, Dec. 11 (UPI) -- New York City's Buildings Department has halted renovations on the hotel room where music icon Bob Dylan stayed and wrote songs in the 1960s.

The New York Post said the new owners of the Hotel Chelsea in Manhattan were gutting Room 211, the space where Dylan wrote his classic "Sad-Eyed Lady of the Lowlands," however, the renovation was blocked after the Buildings Department issued a stop-work order stating the hotel was doing work beyond what was specified in its permit.
