Home to NYC’s contemporary art scene, Chelsea‘s streets are lined with galleries, studios and trendy apartments. Spanning below 28th Street and above 14th Street, from Broadway to the Hudson River, Chelsea changes character even within its boundaries.

To the far west is the High Line, the elevated park that attracts plenty of neighborhood locals as well as tourists. Look towards 23rd street for the prominent Chelsea galleries, like Barbara Gladstone and the Gagosian. Pop into galleries on Thursday evenings for openings that often include free wine and even “meet and greets” with the artists.

Chelsea also has a prominent food scene! Chelsea Market, formerly home to the Nabisco Factory, is an enormous food hall full of gourmet purveyors, including Giovanni Rana Italian restaurant, Cull & Pistol and The Lobster Place for seafood and many more tasty stops. Food Network also has its offices on the upper levels of the building, so don’t be surprised to see a familiar face in the halls.

Cafeteria, a 20-year-old restaurant in Chelsea, is popular with locals, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner and late-night menus around the clock. Stop in for some American comfort food like Eggs Benedict or creamy mac and cheese with bacon.

Chelsea is also home to the Joyce Theatre, a popular destination for local and traveling dance companies. Tickets are generally much cheaper than American Ballet Theatre or New York City Ballet performances at Lincoln Center and the talent is just as good!

    The High Line conversion into park space has been the most inspired development in NYC in years. Now Chelsea has the best of the old and the best of the new in the city.

    4 Seasons Hotel in Chelsea was so nice. Decent size rooms, very good price. Good nearby bars/restaurants.

    The best place to go in Chelsea is the High Line. An old overhead railroad now turned into a garden walk with cafes, mini bars, and seating overlooking the city. Truly the "hip" place to be. Fun, relaxing, exciting and gorgeous all at the same time.
