Neighborhood: Chelsea


Chelsea is a neighborhood on the West Side of Manhattan. The district's boundaries are roughly 14th street to the south and the Hudson River and West Street to the west, with the northern boundary variously described as 30th or 34th street, and the eastern boundary as either sixth or fifth-avenue.

The neighborhood is primarily residential, with a mix of tenements, apartment blocks, city housing projects, Townhouses, and renovated row-houses, but its many retail businesses reflect the ethnic and social diversity of the population. The area has a large LGBTQ population. Chelsea is also known as one of the centers of the city's art world, with over 200 galleries in the neighborhood. However, as of 2015, due to the area's gentrification, there is a widening income gap between the wealthy living in luxury buildings and the poor living in housing projects, who are, at times, across the street from each other.
