The Chelsea neighborhood of the Manhattan has a new member in its entourage of residential buildings, the Citizen. West 23rd Street in the late 19th century featured daily vaudeville performances at the Proctor Theater and was New York's main theater strip until The Empire opened on Broadway 20 blocks uptown.


The stylized marketing logo
The most eastern stretch of West 23rd Street was designated the Ladies' Mile Historic District by the New York Landmark Preservation Commission in May of 1989. Some of New York's most famous stores were located along this district including Lord & Taylor, Bergdorf Goodman, Best & Company, and B. Altman and Company, not to mention Arnold Constable. These stores were prominent between the Civil War and World War I.


The Citizen is a modern understated construct that takes its exterior design concepts from the neighborhood in which it is located. Inside, relatively few apartments are available, 29 in all, in a 16 storey structure, somewhere between a mid-rise and a low-rise, by Manhattan standards.
