Chelsea is a neighborhood on the West Side of Manhattan, located to south of Hell's Kitchen and the Garment District, and north of Greenwich Village, and the Meatpacking District. The neighborhood is part of Manhattan Community Board 4 and Manhattan Community Board 5. An area in the neighborhood is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Chelsea Historic District. Chelsea is sometimes referred to, along with Hell's Kitchen, as Manhattan West. A longstanding weekly newspaper is called the "Chelsea-Clinton News." The weekly newspaper, "Chelsea Now," also serves the neighborhood.



Chelsea is a melting pot of cultures. Above 23rd Street, by the Hudson River, the neighborhood is post-industrial, featuring the newly-hip High Line park that follows the river all through Chelsea. Eighth Avenue is a center for LGBT-oriented shopping and dining, and from 20th to 22nd street between Ninth and Tenth avenues, mid-Nineteenth Century brick and brownstone townhouses are still occupied, some have been restored to single family use.
