Perfect for history lovers, this tour of the historical Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Lower Manhattan invites you into the catacombs, allowing you to see its pipe organ and venture to parts of the building that are normally closed to visitors. Beat the crowds on this tour and enjoy a personal encounter with this New York landmark.

Chelsea is one of my favorite neighborhoods in NYC; primarily, because of its art galleries. Such a great variety of very interesting modern art paintings, a real treat for art lovers. There is one very special gallery, Wilensky Exquisite Minerals. Really stunning collection of magnificent minerals, sculptures and crafts.

During our visit to NY, we headed to Chelsea a few times to enjoy food at the local market and to visit the high line. The neighborhood is bustling with constructions sites, art galleries, interesting restaurants and various landmarks. Close to the high line we noticed a bunch of new interesting building with peculiar architectural structures, breath-taking views on the Hudson River and fancy terraces, which clearly gave a new vibe to this neighborhood which in the past clearly catered to a different social class. Compared to other nearby neighborhoods, we found out it offers a good amount of dining options and It can be easily reached by walk from Penn Station (we actually went all the way from times Square). Definitely an interesting part of New York with plenty of attractions to see.

Just a short walk off the High Line. It's also a short walk down from Hudson Yards. There are plenty of art galleries and shops amongst older buildings as well as new buildings. However, several of the art galleries are currently closed while new exhibits are being added. Still worth walking the streets around Chelsea.

This is a different type of neighborhood in New York. A lot small buildings, cafes and shops. People are friendly and overall atmosphere is less hectic than in Manhattan overall.

Walking on the High Line towards Chelsea allows you to see this part of NYC from the different perspective of an elevated structure. As you are above the ground, you are able to catch glimpses of the Hudson River, Hudson Yards, and MORE. This area is full of art, architecture, history, culture, museums, restaurants, markets, parks, galleries, gardens, and technology. There is so much to see packed within this space. And, you do not have to constantly STOP to cross the intersections. At present, the Hudson Yards area is being gentrified. Watch the contractors-at-work constructing the new buildings. This area is accessible to the non-ambulatory visitor. It is FREE to walk on the High Line.
