  • New York
  • Chelsea, a district dedicated to the artists at the West of Manhattan

    In contrast to New York’s noisy streets, the avenues of the neighbourhood of Chelsea, lined with tall, brick-faced buildings, are characterized by their charming tranquillity. Redeveloped during the 1830s, the 7 townhouses known as Cushman Row (nos. 406 – 418 West 20th St) are the best examples of New York Greek Revival architecture.

    Since 1990, historic garages and warehouses in the Meatpacking District were progressively bought out to make way for contemporary art galleries. With more than 200 galleries, Chelsea incarnates the world’s most important art movements. Moreover, in Chelsea, one finds the most renowned international galleries: the Gagosian Gallery, the Barbara Gladstone Gallery, the Sonnabend Gallery

    Also worth discovering: important cultural sites such as the Joyce Theater, the performing centre The Kitchen, and department store Macy’s.
