Chelsea is without a doubt New York’s most eclectic neighborhood. While 6th and 7th Avenue are home to some of the city's busiest public transportation hubs, New York's true art and culture center thrives very closely toward the west. Notably the best area to explore artwork, galleries, and antiques, Chelsea is brimming with trendy hotels and beautiful pre-war townhomes, offering great speakeasy bars and exceptional meals for the food-obsessed. The Highline and its elevated boardwalk boasts some of the most picturesque views of the city. The area has undergone massive gentrification over the past few decades (e.g., Chelsea Market) but has still been able to retain its cultural roots and gritty New York cool-factor. Chelsea is one of the few areas that truly offers something for everyone.
