City Guides: Chelsea

chelsea city guide title page

The neighborhood of Chelsea is an eclectic gem in  New York. From the infamous Highline and Chelsea Market, to all the delicious eateries, bars, and cafes, I don’t think one could really become bored in this area of the city. Not to mention all the things to do – think art galleries, golfing on the water, trapezing on rooftops, and market hopping. You name it, Chelsea has it, which is why that’s so many people love it so. Us included!
