Located on Manhattan’s West Side between Hell’s Kitchen and the Meatpacking District, Chelsea remains the city’s premier destination for contemporary art. This formerly quiet area has become more traveled lately, largely in part to the development of the High Line as well as an influx of high end shops, restaurants and nightlife destinations.
