Welcome to Chelsea
Historic hotspot and avid arts community
Manhattan’s west side is home to the neighborhood Chelsea. Bounded by the Hudson River and Sixth Avenue, Chelsea is centrally located. The neighborhood is home to several businesses, unique art, and all types of housing. Residents can reach Lower Manhattan in less than twenty minutes, giving them access to the best that NYC has to offer.
Named after a district in London, England, Chelsea has a vast history. In a land that began as an apple orchard as late as 1827, the neighborhood began to gain popularity as it turned into a more industrial area. Despite the neighborhood’s commercialization, it has maintained its history through its ownership of the Chelsea Historic District, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977.
Chelsea is mainly composed of townhomes, apartment buildings, and luxury high-rises. Its central location makes Chelsea a popular destination to call home.
