Those Were The Reasons And That Was New York: Remembering The Chelsea Hotel, Pondering What's Next

The Chelsea Hotel Manhattan Condos for SaleIt's something of an understatement to write that the Chelsea Hotel is among one of the most famed Bohemian landmarks in Manhattan, given that it has been the epicenter of artistic Chelsea and Boho Manhattan for over a century. The long list of notable musicians, writers, and artists who have frequented the hotel’s 125 rooms -- roughly make up half of what is considered artistic New York, give or take -- have produced a slew of homages, from Leonard Cohen's Chelsea Hotel to countless others with less on-the-nose titles. The Chelsea has been adapted into literature, music, art, and film, but now faces a new and perhaps most difficult adaptation, now that the Chelsea landmark has hit the real estate market. It’s strange, but it's true -- the previous owners have decided to sell the hotel, and haven to so many of the greatest artists ever to call Manhattan home, is now a prized piece of Chelsea property for sale. The on-the-market status of the Chelsea Hotel is noteworthy both because it's not every day that icons hit the market and because of what it means for Chelsea's past, present and future.

While most people who care about Manhattan real estate or follow the goings-on in the world of NYC condos know about the big-ticket new condos in Chelsea -- your Nouvel, your HL23, your Chelsea Stratus -- the low-rise luxury condo at 456 West 19th Street kind of snuck in under the radar. Even the name of that luxury condo -- which is, yes, 456 West 19th Street -- speaks to its low-key style, but 456 West 19th Street's understatedly graceful architectural look wins it high praise from The Real Deal's architecture critic, James Gardner.
