      Located às margins do Hudson River e connected ao Meatpacking District através da Highline, Chelsea was a place for production, estocagem and transportation de products – porém, ao contrário de seu vizinho ‘Meatpacking’ (logo ao South), sempre manteve residential areas.

      In the 1980s, the gay and lesbian presence trouxe consigo a tolerance à diversity. Many nightclubs, seguidos pelas art galleries, moved to Chelsea devido aos expensive rents do SoHo. Today over 200 art galleries, dance emporiums and theater companies ocupam this area.

      In the 2000s, boutiques such as Balenciaga and Christian Louboutin ocuparam suas streets. A  transformation da High Line em um beautiful park e a mudança da law de zoneamento transformed o perfil dos moradores do Chelsea.

      Today, a renda anual média de uma family do Chelsea is around 140,000 dollars. An apartment (usually projetado pelos top architects da atualidade) chega a cost between 3 and 10 million dollars – or more.
