    Default Chelsea Savoy Hotel - formerly The Carteret - 208 W23rd Street, Chelsea

    I was looking through a book today that contained a photo of the Chelsea Hotel and was wondereing what the building next door was. This is it.

    It was designed by Emery Roth and built in 1927.

    Apart from those pesky air conditioning units, it has some rather ornate architectural detailing (in need of a jolly good scrub, perhaps).

    This 18-story building, which is known as the Carteret, has handsome terracotta window surround detailing on the third and fourth floors and its top five floors that culminate in a pleasantly designed rooftop watertank enclosure.

ID:	15281This building is still known as the Carteret, as it has always been. For some reason Emporis lists it as the Savoy, which actually is the building on the Southwest corner of 23rd. St. & 7th. Ave. Click image for larger version.

    I initially used Manhattan Block by Block: A Street Atlas by John Tauranac to look it up, wherein it is referred to as the Chelsea Savoy.

    If someone would like to change the title of the thread, feel free.

    In the meantime, let's all enjoy Emery Roth's unheralded gem .

    I'm pretty sure you can re-edit titles that are self started.
