Chelsea, another must see place in NYC. Fabulous shopping, great restaurants. I love just wandering around and looking at the buildings. Plus you never know when you might see a celebrity, so keep your eyes and your camera ready.

Rented an apartment in this district near Penn Station through Airbnb, stayed six nights with hubby and 2 little kids; it was a really fun neighborhood with everything we needed, never had any trouble out of anybody there.

Well, I love Chelsea because it is home to my representative gallery, Noho. Lots of galleries and fun boho vibe. Very easy to spend a day here browsing- some great food too.

This is the place to stay when staying in New York. It is the perfect walking distance from everything you need. It is in the heart of the action of NYC, and is also its own little microcosm of hip. The Highline is incredible, and where you will feel New Yorks sense of community if you hang out there after... More

A great neighborhood that tourists rarely see. Visit the hi-line, a long walk from the Javitts Center to the new Whitney. Great views along the Hudson River and the pay off of shops, bars, restaurants at the end is wonderful. Get to the West Village easily from the last stop and all points south.

OMG! I found the cutest subway station in New York. Honestly, I feel a little bit disappointed about the New York subway environment! Pretty dirty and hot in summer, homeless people, but this time, I am not gonna complaint about that! Coz, this is so cute! It is very close by the famous tourist attraction Chelsea.

We nearly always stay in Chelsea these days when we're visiting New York. Centrally located, nice people, lots of restaurants, easy access to subways. If you come in by train, lots of hotel good options (and some bad ones -- check the trip advisor reviews). As with everywhere in NY, there are shopping options. But basically we use Chelsea as...

Chelsea is a neighborhood undergoing gentrification. But this is also what folks said fifteen years ago when my daughter lived here. Do not visit here to eat at Chelsea Market because there is almost no seating available. A nice walk around here is really only available is you climb up to the High Line and literally walk over Chelsea.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighborhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
