Chelsea

Recommended
Center of New York's art world and gay community, trendy Chelsea contrasts busy commercial avenues with quiet residential side streets. Pleasant cafes rub shoulders with cutting-edge art galleries, shops and restaurants. Along the waterfront areas you can stop for some exercise at the massive Chelsea Piers recreation complex. The neighborhood epitomizes the late-20C urban flair for adapting warehouses for residential and mercantile use.
