"You can find it all in Chelsea"

Chelsea is one of the great New York neighborhoods: great food, great hangout spots, great real estate – but as is the trend in NYC, the price of such things in Chelsea are quite high. That said, Chelsea has just about everything that a well-rounded resident or tourist would expect from the city: art galleries and tons of trendy restaurants and clubs. It’s not the hipster-fied Williamsburg or what was once the Lower East Side, but rather a more upscale brand of cool.
Pros
  • The Chelsea Market and the Chelsea Piers
  • Art galleries abound
  • Famous landmarks
  • Great discount shopping at the Housing Works and Angel Thrift Stores
Cons
  • New luxury developments are changing the character of Chelsea
  • Too many people around at times

"Plenty to see and do"

Chelsea is a hodge-podge of culture, but the neighborhood is perhaps best known for the incredible number of art galleries that line its streets. One of the more interesting art spaces in the neighborhood is the Graffi Research Lab, which, obviously, is dedicated to the writers of graffiti (a seriously underrated art form).
Chelsea has enough action to keep a restless tourist busy for weeks, especially those tourists of a theatre persuasion as they can visit the epic People’s Improv Theater, which offers original comedy shows every night. Also in this location is the Hotel Chelsea – famous to my generation as the place where Sid killed Nancy, and to others as the hotel where Dylan Thomas died. This hotel has been the subject of many artistic endeavors, most likely because it has housed so many artists in the past.
