The newest Chelsea news – and some of the hottest condos for sale – are on the Far West Side, where the south section of the High Line, an elevated park has been created from an abandoned railroad track. The modern development will be great for walking, and the ribbon of green will be a pleasing view for many a Chelsea apartment.
The vibrancy the new park brings is typical of Chelsea, the area running from 14th Street to 34th street on the West Side. Much of the area is a historical district full of 19th-century townhouses; but there are also cutting-edge art galleries for you to get your culture fix, as well as restaurants galore.
If prewar co-op apartments are your thing, one of the most architecturally distinct is London Terrace, a 1929 development that runs the entire block from 23rd to 24th Streets West of Ninth Avenue. This giant Chelsea complex includes a common garden, a pool, and nearly 1,700 units in luxury co-ops (known as the Towers) and doorman rentals (known as the Gardens.)
In other parts of Chelsea, old industrial spaces have been transformed into alluring floor-through lofts, with apartments boasting high ceilings and plentiful windows. For play, the sports complex Chelsea Piers offers a place to play basketball, go bowling, or even work on your drives.
Chelsea stretches from 14th Street to 34th Street between the Hudson River and Sixth Ave.
