CHELSEA - NEW YORK CITY

Chelsea previously understood by most to be from 14th Street to 24th Street, and from Fifth Avenue to the Hudson has grown to extend its northern border to 30th Street and its eastern border to Seventh Avenue.  

 

The name was given to the area by Captain Thomas Clark after the Thames-side village Chelsea, now part of London.  His grandson, Clement Clark Moore, a theologian, was responsible for dividing the land into lots around the 1830’s, and for donating the land occupied by the General Theological Seminary.  

 

The area, with its diverse building styles, is a patchwork of townhouses, pre-war low rises and loft buildings.  With its many residential services, convenience to public transportation and the development of Chelsea Piers, it has become a much sought after community by many.  Chelsea is home to a wide range of people and activities and has recently undergone a transformation that has made it one of New York’s most happening neighbourhoods.  Old warehouses which were once factories and breweries are being converted into gallery spaces, nightclubs and residential lofts.  

 

With the newly paved Husdon River pathway and bike bath with its lush green park areas and newly constructed piers, has truly made this neighbourhood one of the city’s most attractive areas to live in today.  For the most part, Chelsea can be considered a mix of family types, mom-and-pop stores, movie theaters, sports enthusiasts, artists and bargain shopping.  

 

Points of interest include Historic ‘Ladies Mile’ of shopping along 6th Avenue, Chelsea Piers Sports and Recreation complex, Chelsea Market, 26th Street Flea Market, 529 W20th Street known as the "Art Building" - 11 floors of art and fine art galleries, Chelsea Hotel.
