Chelsea Guitars 🎸 located on 23rd Street in the building that houses the Chelsea Hotel.

This #guitar shop opened in 1989 but had been a 🎶 music store since the 1940s. When we spoke with the owner, Dan Courtenay, he told us that "Many famous musicians have shopped here over the years. The Allman Brothers used to live in a van parked right outside the store and would come in here all the time and hang out." Photo from 2004 and full interview with Dan appear in our book, "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York". Signed Prints are also available of this photo starting at $99 for an 11x14 inch. DM or email us for more info.
