"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.
