Neighborhood Watch: Chelsea Penthouse Revoked

New, 6 comments

Not long after the Board of Standards & Appeals shot down penthouse additions to two East Village tenements, a similar decision in Chelsea: "Close to two years after steel girders started going up on a Chelsea row house, igniting a local crusade to stop construction, the city Department of Buildings on Wednesday revoked a permit to build a penthouse at 339 W. 29th St.—the location of a former Underground Railroad stop and home to Quaker abolitionists Abigail Hopper Gibbons and James Gibbons." The block has been calendared for landmark consideration. [Chelsea Now]
