Chelsea

Chelsea is a neighborhood on the West Side of the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is located to the south of Hell's Kitchen and the Garment District, and north of Greenwich Village, and the Meatpacking District that centers on West 14th Street. It is named after the former residence, "Chelsea" of the Moore family. Chelsea has become one of the most sought-after neighborhoods to live in Manhattan. The neighborhood is a friendly mix artists, young professionals and families. Chelsea boasts both the charm of quiet tree lined streets with beautiful brownstones as well as trendy nightclubs, galleries, bars and restaurants, not forgetting to mention Chelsea Piers!

Chelsea has recently become a melting pot of many cultures. Above 23rd Street, by the Hudson River, the neighborhood is industrial or post-industrial, featuring the newly-hip High Line that follows the river all through Chelsea. Eighth Avenue is a center for gay culture, and from 20th to 22nd street between Ninth and Tenth avenue, mid-nineteenth century brick and brownstone townhouses are still occupied, a few even restored to private use.

Since the mid-1990s, Chelsea has become a center of the New York art scene, as an increasing number of art galleries have moved there from SoHo. From 16th Street to 27th Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues, there are more than 200 art galleries that are home to modern art from upcoming artists and respected artists as well. Along with the art galleries, Chelsea is also home to the somewhat well known Graffiti Research Lab. There are many new developments in Chelsea, including a new nine-storey tower with shaped glass front on West St. designed by Frank Gehry.

Chelsea is a hotspot for nightlife in New York City. The infamous 27th Street (AKA: "Club Row") holds some of the cities most notorious clubs such as Marquee, Cain, Bungalow 8, Home, Guesthouse, Pink Elephant, and B.E.D (closed). These nightclubs have become especially popular because of the celebrity sightings. Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Fergie, and many others are regulars at many of these clubs; thus, creating such tough doors.
