Carter Horsley's Review

Carter Horsley's Building Review
"This boxy, but attractive, 15-story Art Deco building at 200 West 20th and Seventh Avenue has a prime location in the heart of the Chelsea District.

Built in 1938 and designed by Emery Roth, the building, known as Kensington House, was converted to a cooperative in 1987 and has 196 apartments. Amenities and staff include 24-hour doorman, live-in superintendent, laundry room, package room, and roof deck with Empire State Building views. Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, transportation, and Chelsea's best galleries, restaurants, and nightlife are a short walk away." Read Carter's Full Review
Pros
  • Central Chelsea location

  • Very fine octagonal entrance marquee
  • Allegedly first apartment house in city to use welded rather than riveted steel
  • Doorman
  • Pre-war construction
  • Close to Flatiron District and many fashionable restaurants
  • Three short blocks from subway station and cross-town buses
  • Some corner windows
  • Sunken living rooms
Cons
  • No balconies
  • Missing its cornice
  • Missing original water tank enclosure
  • No health club
  • No garage
  • Considerable traffic on Seventh Avenue
