Chelsea is possibly one of New York City’s most famous districts. Chelsea lies roughly from 39th to 15th Streets, between the Hudson River and Fifth Avenue. Chelsea is mostly a residential neighborhood, with many townhouses, row-houses and apartment blocks. It’s a great place for lovers of contemporary art as there are numerous small galleries dotting its streets. It’s also a great place for photographers as there are still enough quirky sights to catch the eye, and the lens.
