Chelsea’s Crown Jewel | Our Search for the Ultimate Penthouse in Manhattan’s Hottest Neighborhood

Chelsea is not only the most desirable neighborhood in Manhattan, but has rapidly become one of the most sought after addresses on the planet for the sophisticated jet setter.

If you are an art collector, the Chelsea art district boasts hundreds of galleries and is one of the most important and influential in the world. If you are a gourmand, you are situated amidst an abundance of world-class dining at New York’s top restaurants. We searched high and low for the perfect penthouse right in the middle of the action, but one that is quietly positioned as an opulent haven in the sky. What we found was a breathtaking duplex on West 19th Street, one of Chelsea’s finest blocks. This amazing space offers an indescribable living experience and unequaled panoramic city and river vistas.

Every inch of this immaculate 4,054 square foot duplex penthouse reflects superior craftsmanship, the utmost attention to detail and ultrarefined finishes at every turn.
