“You can find anything in Chelsea”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Like so much of NYC, Chelsea is old; it is lined by projects along 9th avenue, mom and pop stores along 8th, lots of foreign wholesalers in the intersecting side streets; yoga and dance studios on the upper floors of the wholesalers, a thousand small eateries, trendy but not top notch, and saturated with gay visitors and residents alike . The area offers superb shopping on 23rd Street, and bargains on 14th St. 6th Avenue is a well stocked shopping corridor from 14th Street to Herald Square, passing through the flower district, and leading right to the shopping Mecca at Macy's . On 7th Avenue, Madison Square Garden is the pre-eminent destination on 32nd St. Shopping, sports, eating, you can do it all somewhere in Chelsea.

“Simply great to walk and see the side streets”

Great architecture. Walk through the side streets and enjoy seeing the great architecture, so particular of this neighbourhood. Great restaurants and bars as well. A lively place.

“Hells Kitchen”
Reviewed November 29, 2012

It is somewhat run down in spots but it was home at once to the Hell's Kitchen Boys (Irish Mafia) if you are interested in that sort of thing.

“Lovely part of the city!”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

Chelsea feels new, and fresh, and hip and young, and cool and open, and is a great little neighborhood. I love visiting the area for brunch, lunch, dinner or flea market shopping!

“Cool neighborhood”
Reviewed November 25, 2012

Living close by I find myself in Chelsea often. Great restaurants, shopping and bars/clubs. With meatpacking district in its midst, always a find for anyone. Young, hip and cool it's a awesome respite from the 5th ave and times square tourist crowd. With unique shops and restaurants too boot, tourist will find a cool destination off the usual beaten path.
