Neighborhood Profile

Formerly a warehouse district bleeding into the now-hot Meatpacking District, Chelsea started transforming in the early 1990s, when club kids would flock to the area to legendary parties at The Tunnel, Limelight (and before that, Twilo) or Avalon. Prior to that, the infamous Chelsea Hotel on West 23rd Street attracted rock stars, writers and creative minds of the 60s and 70s. From the late 1990s, art galleries started moving from SoHo to the less-expensive areas in Chelsea. Today, over 350 galleries are located in the area spanning from around 30th to 15th Streets – mostly far west, from Ninth Avenue to the West Side Highway. Now almost completely gentrified, Chelsea has become an upscale neighborhood with bistros, luxury apartments, art galleries, and designer boutiques.

Buildings in the Neighborhood

Chelsea is quite uneven architecturally - there is no single block that can be called "typical". At least three major buildings types – the brownstone, the housing project, and the "industrial loft building" – are all present here, in roughly equal proportions. In addition, new doorman high-rises have begun springing up along major avenues, especially on the neighborhood's west side. In their shadows, historic brownstones and town-homes create a quaint, "neighborhoody" feel along the side streets.
