On Manhattan’s West Side, art galleries, production studios, refurbished industrial buildings, and trendy restaurants and bars make Chelsea/Meatpacking one of the city’s chicest neighborhoods. Perfect for both day and night exploration, the area is buzzing 24/7. Stroll on an abandoned railroad turned City Park, as you walk above 10th avenue traffic on the Highline. Head to the south end of the park to fill your belly at the famed Chelsea Market and your brain at the Whitney museum. Interested in a little retail therapy? The streets are lined with boutiques and art galleries.
If you’re looking for nightlife, there is no better neighborhood to dress to the nines and wine and dine. City hot spots such as Mario Batali’s Del Posto, Buddakan, 1 Oak nightclub, and speakeasy-style lounge Bathtub Gin offer something for everyone.
With so much to do, there is a reason this neighborhood is a city favorite among locals, visitors, and even celebrities. Always keep your eyes open when in Chelsea – you never know who you might see!
