Chelsea is a busy Manhattan neighborhood between West 14th street to West 30th street, known for its fashionable reputation. Nestled in Manhattan’s District 4, with surrounding areas including Clinton and Hudson Yards, Chelsea is a trendy and residential area, although still full of nightlife with bars, lounges, and clubs like the Highline Ballroom.

Chelsea is known as the Art District, boasting some 200 galleries, including the Gagosian Gallery. Attractions in the area include the Highline, a park built on an elevated railroad track, and the Chelsea Piers, an entertainment complex located on the Hudson River that makes Chelsea a unique area with an authentic feel of how NYC has developed over the years.

The higher incomes of Chelsea residents (the median income is $98k for District 4 residents) affords the ability to enjoy the fine dining options of various “Top Chef” owned restaurants, and to shop in the various charming shops in the neighborhood. Finally, this neighborhood is easily accessible by several train lines (A, C, E, L, F, and M lines) so many get to enjoy the arts and excellent restaurants of Chelsea Market.
