Things to see in Chelsea

Almost a mile and a half in length, the High Line is a park that sits above street level on a disused train track and runs right through Chelsea. This greenway provides a refreshing oasis right in the center of Manhattan with impressive views of the Hudson River and the area’s industrial, stripped-back architecture. After working up an appetite in the park, shoppers can head to the Chelsea Market—a massive food court situated below the High Line where dozens of vendors purvey a range of delicious produce. The Oreo was even invented in this very building! Those looking to satisfy their cultural appetites can head to the Gladstone or Gagosian Gallery. These two galleries, located side by side in the center of Chelsea, offer travelers an opportunity to view alternative modern art installations and temporary exhibitions from new and established international artists.
