A house in the sky with four exposures, this remarkable home features five bedrooms, a 30-foot atrium, six private terraces and striking views of the Hudson River and Empire State Building. Named The Chelsea Skyhouse, this triplex offers 6,000 SF of total living space and 7,000 SF of private outdoor space perched on top of a Chelsea landmark building. This dramatic and private space is pin-drop quiet and boasts soaring ceilings, speakers throughout, a laundry room, central A/C, reinforced walls for art, top-of-the-line appliances, abundant closet and storage space, a floating steel staircase and a private elevator landing. Formerly the historic Y.M.C.A. McBurney branch - frequented by notable New Yorkers by the likes of Andy Warhol and Al Pacino and featured in Village People's famous “Y.M.C.A.” music video - this Beaux-Arts building was transformed into twelve lofts in the heart of Chelsea in 2004. Additional luxuries of the boutique condominium include a part-time doorman and on-site super.

Chelsea | Manhattan

Quick Profile

The row houses portray the world-class architecture of Greek Revival, Italianate and Georgian styles. The population is both ethnically and socially diverse, which is reflected in the restaurants and retail businesses in the neighborhood. 

Western Chelsea is the center of the NYC art world, where you will find more than 200 art galleries housed in rehabbed factories and warehouses, as well as in newly-constructed buildings.

While people of many different cultures call Chelsea home, it has been a mecca over the years for people in the LGBTQ community. One census reported that as many as 22% of its residents were gay couples. Eighth Avenue is a trendy area for LGBTQ-oriented dining and shopping. Although it no longer draws the LGBTQ population that it once did, Chelsea still has many popular alternative bars.  

Chelsea is primarily residential, consisting of a mixture of diverse complexes, low-rise apartment blocks, tenements, townhouses, renovated row houses, and luxury high-rises. 

Chelsea is an interesting and sought-after place to live, with unique clothing boutiques, restaurants, and delis representing cultures from around the world. In addition to its quirky establishments, Chelsea has fine dining restaurants and a vibrant, hip nightlife, which adds to its allure.

Chelsea is well-served by public transportation. At least six city bus routes traverse Chelsea. There are three NYC subway routes with stops on Seventh Avenue, three on Eighth Avenue, and two more on Sixth Avenue. The 34th Street - Hudson Yards Station opened in 2015 with its main entrance in Chelsea.
