Stretching from 14th Street to 34th Street west of Sixth Avenue, Chelsea is the epicenter of the Manhattan arts scene, home to over 200 galleries. The Chelsea Historic District is on the National Register of Historic Places, where early 19th century residential and industrial architecture line the streets. Nowadays, many pre-war structures have been renovated as luxury condominiums, reimagined as foodie meccas like Chelsea Market, or transformed into public space such as The High Line. New construction has added ultra-modern buildings alongside historic townhouses, creating a unique atmosphere.
Chelsea has some of the most exclusive restaurants and bars in the city. It is dynamic and hip, with a strong arts and LGBTQ community. The neighborhood’s hustle and bustle makes for an active and energetic nightlife. In Chelsea, new and the old mix well together, where differences combine to create one unique, ever-modernizing neighborhood.
