A pictorial of the Chelsea neighborhood.
During the day, the views from the High Line, which used to be a highway and is now a long walkway and park, has views of the city and the Hudson.
There are many places to sit and walk above the streets of Manhattan,
and graffiti can be both artistic and profound.
If you prefer, you can stroll street level
or use the ride share bikes
to get to the Chelsea Park and Pier.
There's a sports complex with golf at one end of the Pier,
and a view of New Jersey across the Hudson River.
Chelsea has an art district where galleries open to the public the first Thursday afternoon and evening of every month with wine (donations appreciated); the area is around 23rd to 25th St at Tenth Ave and galleries stay open until about 9pm.
There's a Farmer's market on Saturdays, offering a rainbow of fruits and vegetables for locals.
A tree may grow in Brooklyn, but they grow in Manhattan too :)
