"Hip, Young, Vibrant"

One of the most vibrant streets of Chelsea, W 17th street is full of great food, shopping, and an overall positive atmosphere. From the expansive liquor store on its 8th ave corner to its diminutive but vast D’AG supermarket further down, along with Nooch (fantastic curry and spring rolls, not to mention the sushi!), and The Energy Kitchen. There is some great thrift shopping between 6th and 7th ave, and of course, some more expensive shopping on 5th ave, but still definitely worth a peek. Transportation, education and other amenities on this street are quite easy to access and excellent in quality. There are always groups of people on the street, so it is okay to feel safe here. Many venues are open late or 24 hours, so you will definitely be able to find something to do here. The community here is exciting.

"Food and Fun in Chelsea"

Located in Chelsea, W. 17th Street is a place with wonderful food, shopping, and very positive street feel. I spent a nice afternoon there with girlfriends, and we made a stop at the Chelsea Market, which harbors wonderful produce and goods. There are a myriad of good restaraunt in Chelsea, though you must try Nooch if you have a chance. The Energy Kitchen is also a great place to eat (try the eggs). If you enjoy thrift stores, you should also go to the Housing Works thrift store between 6th and 7th avenue to find some wonderful unique finds. This is a really fun street and a fun place to spend a day with friend.
