Chelsea Studios

Chelsea Studios, also known as Chelsea Television Studios, is a television studio and sound stage located at 221 West 26th Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan, New York City.

History[edit]

The building was originally an armory which was home to the Ninth Mounted Cavalry, which moved to 14th Street in 1914. Adolph Zukor turned it into a studio for the Famous Players Film Company. Among the films produced there were An American Citizen and That Man from Mexico starring John Barrymore.[1]

In the 1950s Himan Brown bought the studio and gutted it to create two sound stages known as Production Center Studios.[1] In the 1960s and 70s Brown leased the facility to CBS for soap opera productions. It is currently owned by All Mobile Video.[2]
