Chelsea Art Deco

More Than Google and The High Line

With Matt Postal

Many unsung Art Deco delights are found in Chelsea. From works by Ely Jacques Kahn to Horace Ginsbern, this midtown neighborhood has something for everyone, including apartments houses, loft buildings, and even a stylish automobile garage. Highlights include the High School of Fashion Industries, a former telephone switching station (now luxury apartments) built for the New York Telephone Company, and Ralph Walker’s monumental Salvation Army Centennial Memorial Temple.
