New Facade Element on Chelsea Hotel, a.k.a. Friendly Towers

Chelsea Hotel, Friendly Towers

Uptown Update is reporting that the historic cast iron canopy removed from the Friendly Towers on Wilson has finally been replaced with a new (somewhat less impressive) architectural element. Visit their blog and check it out.

The image here is an early postcard of when the Friendly Towers was the Chelsea Hotel. The back reads: "Phone Longbeach 3000, 260 Rooms each with Bath. Rates $50, $60, $70 and $80 per month.  Residential and Transient Room with Bath $2.00 and up."
