So many restaurants, shopping, Chelsea market. The places to visit are endless. So much to do in this area! It's near the famous meat packing district, the Highline, and the village. A must see!

Going down toward the south from the Hell's Kitchen, we (my wife and I ) found ourselves in the Chelsea, very nice and pleasant region of New York. Between 14th street to the south and 30th street to the north and between the Hudson River and West Street to the west and Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Avenue) and Seventh... More

On a sunny Spring day we found ourselves in Chelsea area. We toured some art galleries, which are not typical storefront displays, but hidden away in warehouses. We walked along the relatively new park along the old elevated rail line. This is probably a great garden treat to local inhabitants, but coming from Maine it's not exactly the great outdoors....

I walked from the port authority all the way to the WTC site one afternoon. It took me through Chelsea. What a wonderful area. Friendly people, small parks, nice dogs (and their owners). Much preferred over taking a cab.

This is where you see the art world of today. The galleries are plentiful. Get the Gallery Guide and see where the type of art you enjoy is being shown. Then look for the unusual and see it also. There are many restaurants nearby. If you have time check out Chelsea Pier.
