Chelsea

This hip locality on the west side of Manhattan is a melting spot for art, fashion, and food. A historical settlement, Chelsea has evolved as a post-industrial neighborhood with sophisticated offerings of NewYork City.

With over 200 galleries housed in new buildings and rehabilitated warehouses, Chelsea is at the centerof New York art scene. Interestingly enough, the art aspect extends beyond galleries onto the streets and infrastructure, such as the High Line. Restoration and rehabilitation are the underlying themes of the most intriguing public spaces in Chelsea. Chelsea Piers, one-time luxury cruise terminal that now house an entertainment and sports complex, and Chelsea Market housed in a restored historic factory shows balance between the new and the old unique to this neighborhood.

With its eclectic shopping and exciting nightlife, Chelsea is rising destination for New Yorkers and its visitors. Having played host to prominent writers and artists over the decades, this neighborhood is now attracting residents by the numbers.
