Chelsea spans from 14th Street to 28th Street and from 5th Avenue to the Hudson River. The charming neighborhood has undergone a myriad of changes over the past several years. These days Chelsea is the home to trendy restaurants, shops and nightclubs as well as a cutting edge art scene that have it replacing Greenwich Village and SoHo as Manhattan’s litmus test for cool. The rule of thumb is: if it happened in Chelsea, it’s now. That edgy attitude can be seen even more prominently as more and more luxury lofts and condominiums go up everyday. This new modern aesthetic coupled with the charming neighborhood feel, brought on by the area’s tree-lined streets filled with rows of historic townhouses make for a have-it-all hot spot in Manhattan real estate. Subway stops: The A, C, E line to 23rd Street; the 1, 2, 3, 9 line to 28th or 23rd Streets; or the F or V train to 28th Street.
