Lindsay Lohan returned to the scene of her alleged crime early this morning (October 2), visiting the Dream Downtown Hotel in New York City a little over a year after she was arrested there — having allegedly hitting a pedestrian with her SUV and driving away in September 2012.

As TMZ photographs prove, she arrived at the luxe hotel around 1:30 a.m. ET and hung out with Vikram Chatwal, the owner of the hotel. Vikram, like Lindsay, is also a recovering addict. The site reports that he and Lindsay believe they can help one another stay sober.

The 27-year-old hit up other NYC hotspots last night, too: A source tells Wetpaint Entertainment that Lindsay visited the Mondrian SoHo Hotel around 10:30 p.m., arriving with a couple of people who "didn't seem like friends" of Lindsay’s.

The witness tells us that Lindsay "smoked a lot of cigarettes but [consumed] no booze" at the Mondrian. So, discounting the tobacco she appeared to be smoking, it seems like Lindsay is living a healthier lifestyle and holding true to her sobriety.

And if she thinks Vikram is a helpful sober companion, more power to her!
