Chelsea's boundaries stretch North from 14th Street to 34th St and West from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River. But boundaries are not what Chelsea has ever been about -- home to some of New York City's most luxurious shopping, best art galleries, the ultra-hip High Line park and some of the most impressive new architecture on display anywhere in Manhattan, Chelsea is one of New York's most fascinating and desirable residential neighborhoods. Thanks to a host of stunning new luxury apartment buildings, Chelsea is also home to some of the most desirable apartments for rent in all of New York real estate.
While Chelsea is famed for its hundreds of art galleries, some of the most impressive new eye candy in the neighborhood is of the architectural variety. Not to take anything away from the work on display in the Gagosian Gallery, the Matthew Marks Gallery, or the Sonnabend, but Frank Gehry's shaped-glass structure on West Street may be the most famous new visual attraction in the neighborhood. The beautiful High Line park, which runs above ninth avenue through lower Chelsea and into the Meatpacking District, has also emerged as an attraction to rival those of Chelsea's Barneys CO-OP, Comme Des Garcons, Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney and Balenciaga boutiques. Chelsea Market provides easy access to gourmet food, Chelsea Piers offers peerless sports facilities -- from basketball courts and golf driving ranges to a bowling alley and rock climbing -- and several easily accessible mass transit options put the rest of the city within easy reach. Chelsea is a neighborhood many people want to visit, and few people want to leave.
Which makes it no surprise that apartments for rent in Chelsea are among the most sought-after rental listings in Manhattan. While there are numerous new construction rental buildings in Chelsea, many of the loveliest apartment listings in Chelsea strike a distinctly classical note -- these include the elegant pre-war Stonehenge Gardens and the art deco-influenced Westminster, designed by architectural classicist Robert A.M. Stern. The Echelon Chelsea and The Sierra offer ultra-modern rental apartments with state-of-the-art amenities, while The Vanguard Chelsea is an impressively green apartment building that ranks with any luxury rental building in Manhattan when it comes to elegant flats for rent. With apartment homes and rental buildings that are every bit as spectacular as the neighborhood in which they sit, Chelsea is one of Manhattan's loveliest neighborhoods, and an exceptional place to live.
