Welcome to Chelsea
Downtown on the West Side, from 14th Street to 34th Street, and from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River.
The newest Chelsea news and some of the hottest condos on the market are on the far west side, where the south section of the high line, an elevated park that's been created from an abandoned railroad track. The modern development is great for meandering about as well as people watching, and the ribbon of green is a pleasing view for the overlooking Chelsea apartments.
The vibrancy the new park brings, running from 14th Street to 34th street on the West Side, is reflective of Chelsea’s lively character. Much of the area is a historical district full of 19th-century townhouses punctuated with cutting-edge art galleries as well as restaurants galore. If prewar co-op apartments are your thing, one of the most architecturally distinct is London Terrace, a 1929 development that runs the entire block from 23rd to 24th Streets West of Ninth Avenue. This giant Chelsea complex includes a common garden, a pool, and nearly 1,700 units in luxury co-ops (known as the Towers) and doorman rentals (known as the Gardens). In other parts of Chelsea, old industrial spaces have been transformed into alluring floor-through lofts, with apartments boasting high ceilings and abundant windows. For play, the sports complex at Chelsea Piers is a great place to play basketball, go bowling, or even work on your drives.
