Facts

  • In 1966, the Chelsea was granted landmark status, and except for a three-story-high streamlined neon sign that replaced the small sign in Abbott's photograph, the facade remains unchanged.
  • Down the street from the Grand Opera House, the Chelsea Hotel is another landmark of Victorian New York.
  • Built in 1884 when 23rd Street was the center of fashionable New York, the Chelsea Hotel was architecturally conservative and lavishly decorated.
  • By the 1930s, it had been the home of several illustrious writers, including O. Henry, Thomas Wolfe, and Edgar Lee Masters, who appreciated its shabby elegance.
