Chelsea, NY

New York
The High Line Park featuring a city, a garden and street scenes
Manhattan’s prized arts district is a success story of urban renewal. Tour the area to see some of Downtown’s hippest attractions.

When New Yorkers think of Chelsea, they think of the art world. The neighborhood is filled with hundreds of contemporary and other art galleries. In addition to browsing collections and unique pieces, see fine examples of brownstone and art deco architecture and stroll through an elevated park that’s on a disused railway line.

Chelsea was once a center for vice in the 1920s and 1930s, but it gradually became a place where artists and bohemians found affordable residences. As gentrification progressed throughout the 1990s, wealthier people moved in and established a thriving dining and club scene.

Enjoy an authentic New York City gallery-hopping experience. Generally you will find the highest concentration of galleries toward Chelsea’s west side, between 20th and 28th streets. Particularly famous galleries include the Gagosian Gallery on 24th Street. Find a few galleries that cater to your tastes or expand your art appreciation by visiting a broader selection of stores and studios.

Visit the High Line and Chelsea Market, which are just steps from each other. The High Line is a rail trail conversion that attracts visitors from all over the world. Browse the contemporary artworks and manicured gardens found in this above-ground park. Grab a bite to eat at Chelsea Market, where dozens of vendors sell lots of gourmet treats.

Chelsea is home to unique and stylish accommodations that make staying here enjoyable and convenient. Visit the historic Chelsea Hotel, where many famous artists have stayed. Enjoy a Michelin-starred meal in the unpretentious Nomad restaurant, located in the Hotel Nomad. When you’re ready to go out, catch a comedy show at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre location on 26th Street.

The eastern side of Chelsea is served by half a dozen trains, though the west side has no train service. Catch a cab on any of Chelsea’s busy streets at any hour, but don’t leave before you’ve seen all this classy neighborhood has to offer.
