Visited the markets on a Sunday... well I can honestly say I won’t rush back. Shops over priced, no seating, everyone crowded into one walkway... Not an enjoyable day. It’s all good to be able to get something to eat / Drink, but what's the use if you can’t find a seat to sit at and enjoy your food.

It runs from Gansevoort Street in... More

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

Chelsea is a fun neighborhood to visit when you are in the city. If you have a pretty day and like to walk you can visit galleries (last I heard there are 300) till you are cross eyed then enjoy one of the fabulous coffee shops or have a beer or glass of wine. Walking the HiLine is a must.... More

It seemed to me as a neighborhoud that undergoes improvement in many ways. Lots of restaurants and things to do. Great night life.

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.
