  • Bike Lane Proposal In Chelsea By Christine Mulé | August 16, 2011

    The Department of Transportation is looking into developing a bike lane in Chelsea. In the wake of a cyclist's death caused because of the lack of a bike route from the Hudson River east to the East River, the city is trying to make it safer for bikers to commute to and from their homes on bicycle. It is a dangerous game that bikers play on the streets of Manhattan that don’t have bike lanes, trying to avoid getting hit by trucks as they pedal to their destination and flags have been warned of deaths and injuries due to this issue.

  • Women's Boxing Comes to Chelsea By Adam Rothstein | August 16, 2011

    The first rule of fight club has changed from the mandatory silence of its members to a proud, deafening roar issued forth by the women who now comprise it. Situated in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood, Women’s World of Boxing, founded by Teresa Scott, offers boxing classes specifically designed for women, as explained in a DNAinfo article. It all started about eight years ago, when Scott found herself weighing in at 250 pounds. She had tried everything, from boot camps to gyms and a variety of fitness classes.

So she took matters into her own hands...or perhaps more aptly, her fists of fury.

  • High Line Skate Park: A Unique Addition to a Popular Park By Phil Ryan | August 11, 2011

    At Elegran, we love the High Line; it’s a fantastic and one-of-a-kind park not only in New York City but in many ways the rest of the country. Meticulously landscaped with stunning views, it’s easy to see why it’s become such a catalyst for new development of luxury condominiums. Who knew that turning an abandoned railway trestle into a park could turn out so well? Those brilliant minds at Friends of the High Line did, and now they’re taking the areas around the new phase of the park for some temporary installations. From a beer garden to gourmet chefs, the lots near the northern end of the High Line are now home to a skate park, a welcome addition to an area with little open space, even by Manhattan standards.
