The General Theological Seminary takes up an entire block of West Chelsea between 9th and 10th Avenue. The seminary is the oldest Episcopalian seminary in the country-- it was founded in 1817! We've been peering through the bars for years on the way up to the galleries in Chelsea, and now, courtesy of Open House New York and our pal What I See, we finally get to take a peek inside. Check out his outdoor shots, as well as some interior pictures. And if you are interested in beautiful NYC seminaries, you should also check out the cloisters at Union Theological Seminary up in Morningside Heights.
