Chelsea, the neighborhood bounded by West 30th and 14th Streets, and Seventh Avenue and the Hudson River, has several hallmarks: elite art galleries in the West 20s; velvet rope dance clubs; a gay community; and eateries lining Eighth and Ninth Avenues. Standout, unique attractions within the scene have come together as Destination Chelsea to build awareness of its diversity. Destination Chelsea.org has a cultural events calendar, neighborhood blog, and ratings of local businesses.
