An idyllic Penthouse situated in a 25-foot-wide Italianate Brownstone built in 1856 is located on Chelsea's most desirable block. This unique residence features a private rooftop that flaunts panoramic and protected views of the iconic Empire State Building and Midtown Manhattan Skyline, overlooking the lavish grounds and rich architecture of the General Theological Seminary---a true and peaceful rarity!
