Home to world-famous retrofit architecture and some of the finest art galleries in the city. Welcome to Chelsea real estate.

Welcome to Chelsea

An exclusive, artsy lifestyle awaits at this cultural epicenter
The perfect blend of uptown and downtown, convenience isn’t the only draw of Chelsea homes, even though it’s only a short drive from downtown Manhattan. Located on the West Side, Chelsea is home to the Chelsea Historic District and is considered one of the centers of the art world. Luxury and uptown glamour meets cultural institutions and artsy atmosphere in Chelsea, making it home to an unparalleled lifestyle and one of the most sought-after locations in the city.
Steeped in history, Chelsea began as a neighborhood well before the American Revolutionary War. Experiencing the ups and downs of the country throughout the centuries, residents thrive on the history present along every corner of the neighborhood, giving the whole community an air of cultural poignancy.
That history also makes itself known via the neighborhood’s stunning architecture. Ribboning throughout the tree-lined streets are historic brownstones in a myriad of unique styles such as the Greek Revival styles of West 20th Street or the Anglo-Italianate style, which hosts low stoops, quaint windows, and double-leafed doors with an arched top. In addition to its history, Chelsea is also home to sleek, modern high-rises brimming with luxury. Enchanted by both the connectedness and the mix of unique class and culture, many young professionals are proud to call Chelsea home.

A neighborhood known for its nightlife and foodie scene, not to mention its artsy flea markets, the area is replete with fine dining, casual fun, elite shopping, and quaint antiquing. Basically, if you can imagine it, chances are you can do it somewhere in the neighborhood.
Tucked into the heart of New York City’s Meatpacking District is Chelsea Market, a deluxe shopping center home to a food and retail scene with a global perspective. After updating the wardrobe or grabbing some organic groceries for this Sunday’s dinner, be sure to make a reservation at Cafeteria, one of the deliciously unique restaurants that give Chelsea its funky, artsy vibe. Overlooking the gorgeous sights of Chelsea is the High Line Hotel, which is home to some great activities, as well as a spacious cocktail garden and fine lobby bar.
A pillar of Chelsea’s elevated international cuisine, Tao is a gallery, nightclub, and fine dining destination all in one. Meanwhile, the kids will absolutely love Kidding Around, a whimsical and fun-filled toy shop considered one of the best in the city. Of course, they’ll be looking their best every time they go due to the fact that Lucky Wang, a premier children’s clothing store, is located right in the neighborhood.

Things to Do

Hands-down, Chelsea is one of the best places in the world to peruse art, whether it be historically significant or contemporary and experimental — or both! Beyond that, the urban green spaces create pockets of natural splendor throughout the neighborhood.
Electric and invigorating, Chelsea’s nightlife is when the neighborhood comes alive. Clubbing at Tao, dancing to incredible live shows at the Highline Ballroom, and the combination of dancing, cocktails, and famous music acts at 1 Oak are all emblematic of the excitement Chelsea has to offer. Somehow even more impressive than its nightlife is Chelsea’s commitment to the arts. Gallery crawls, afternoons spent strolling through displays of fine art, and date nights at some of the world’s top exhibits are common occurrences in Chelsea.
The newest must see destination is the park known as Little Island, a multi-tiered floating public space with interactive art installations, immersive natural surroundings, and annual celebrations of community and live music. One of the city’s most picturesque parks, The High Line is owned and operated by the City of New York and Friends of the High Line. With over a mile of elevated walkways, complete with waterfront views and city skylines, locals and tourists alike love the High Line.
