Chelsea stretches from 15th Street to 34th Street (give or take) between the Hudson River and Sixth Ave. Chelsea’s origins date back to 1750 and the neighborhood has seen a lot of change since its days as a family farm. Chelsea was the city’s first theater district, a fashionable shopping district. Today Chelsea is a mix of galleries, restaurants, theatres, light industry, and residences that range from public housing projects and tenement buildings, to private townhouses and luxury lofts.
These are just some highlights of our immediate neighborhood:
The NYAP residence is convenient to virtually all train and bus lines, and is a block away from Penn Station.
