Chelsea, a neighborhood on the West Side of Manhattan, stretches from Seventh Avenue to the Hudson River and lies between 14th and 30th Streets. Chelsea has come a long way since its farm days in 1750, evolving from a thriving residential area of single family homes and rowhouses occupied by well-heeled New Yorkers to an industrial zone that housed multiple distilleries. In the late 1800s it became a thriving theater district and the subsequent construction of the Hotel Chelsea began an era of fame and sometimes notoriety for the writers, musicians and artists who lived there, including Mark Twain, Tennessee Williams, Allen Ginsburg, Janis Joplin, Dylan Thomas, Iggy Pop and Sid Vicious.
Today, Chelsea maintains the upscale air and dramatic bent of its history.
West Chelsea has become a global center of contemporary art, boasting hundreds of art galleries and studios. It is home to the Rubin Museum of Art, the Graffiti Research Lab, New York Live Arts, The Joyce Theater, and The Kitchen, a center for cutting-edge theatrical and visual arts.
Chelsea’s restaurants, delis and clothing boutiques reflect the ethnic and social diversity of the area’s population.
Chelsea Market, on the ground floor of the former Nabisco Building, hosts a variety of shopping and dining options and is a hotspot for foodies. On summer days, cool off with a cocktail aboard the Frying Pan, an outdoor oasis located on a ship docked in the Hudson River.
Chelsea also offers a popular shopping alternative to Madison Avenue
featuring renowned boutiques including Barneys CO-OP, Comme des Garcons, and Balenciaga boutiques, with Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Christian Louboutin nearby.
Fashion extends into the night in Chelsea
at venues like the Marquee Night Club, Hiro Ballroom, Pink Elephant, G Lounge and Chelsea Brewing Company, which make for a lively and chic nightlife. Those who want to keep it casual can opt for Comix, a relative newcomer to the Manhattan comedy club scene that features seasoned comics like Sarah Silverman alongside up-and-coming amateurs.
Changes in zoning resolution in conjunction with the development of the High Line Park have resulted in a new construction boom in Chelsea, with projects by notable architects such as Shigeru Ban, Neil Denari, Jean Nouvel and Frank Gehry.

Top condominiums include The Porter House, The O’Neill Building, The Chelsea Mercantile, Chelsea Atelier, 100 Eleventh Avenue, The Dance Building, 245 Tenth Avenue, The Steiner Building and 360 Tenth Avenue.
Landmarks and places of interest in Chelsea include Chelsea Piers, an entertainment and sports mecca, the still-expanding High Line Park, and Chelsea Studios, where numerous movies and television shows are still produced.
