"Changes are not always for the better"

I visited West 19th a few years ago and happened upon it again just recently and I have to say the changes it has endured are not necessarily for the better. When you enter Manhattan you should never expect absolute quiet, however I was amazed at the level of noise on the street in the wee hours of the morning. It's looking more and more industrialized and the amount of trucks and movement is not a pretty site or sound. Walking inside a building didn't make it much better and I can't imagine the noise issue during the warm summer months. West 19th is part of Chelsea but it doesn't have the art-chic charm that can be found on other streets that are part of the neighborhood in my opinion. It's a take it or leave it street in my opinion.

"Boring, Boring, Boring"

It is very similar to its surrounding streets with slightly more desirable housing options. A friend and I were walking here last night and decided that out of all of the streets in the neighborhood, this was probably the cleanest.

West 19th Street is close to the following metro stations: A, C, E, L at 8th and 14th Street, 1,2,3 at 14th Street. It is also accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is heavy, and it is a good neighborhood for all people!

"A bit below center"

A bit below the center of the chelsea gallery scene, west 19th st is a bit more industrial in appearance. It is home the the famous Kitchen, an art gallery and performance art space. Nearby is Printed Matter, a great art book store. I once saw Sophia Coppola there. Yeah!
