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.


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]
