  • This area is becoming more and more popular especially with the high line park. Lots of caffees and restaurants, bars. 
  • For those who already know NY and also for those who have more time and besides knowing the most traditional neighborhoods can get away and immerse yourself in new experiences. The Chelseamarket is gourmet and complex sales of supplies for cuisine that is located in the old buildings of the sheds of ex refrigerators and stone walls with railway stations. You have great attendance home and tourists and you can find all kinds of variety of food, even seafood and lobster and very good chocolate, as well as shops selling things typical

  • One of the best places in the world to see the work of the great international artists. Many galleries of first level, with top artists or emerging. Ideal to know what is going on in the world of art at this time. Chelsea is really a neighborhood essential for lovers of art, either as an artist, as an admirer or buyer. Suggestions, visit the renowned galleries, but not stop going to the most small or less known. Maybe they will surprise us.
