Chelsea is one of the most prominent New York City neighborhoods, with amazing shopping, a fun nightlife, and gorgeous gardens. People flock to Chelsea to find a photo shoot location or wedding venue near any one of these local attractions:
The High Line
The High Line is a formerly abandoned, elevated railway. In recent years, it has become a beautiful stretch of land that reaches 30 feet above street level. Locals and tourists walk this elevated park for its amazing views and fun attractions.
The Chelsea Market is world-renowned for its sprawling structure that houses dining establishments, a shopping mall, and even a television production facility. The Market used to be home to a factory that produced biscuits, but now it pleases guests with a variety of Chelsea’s greatest stores.
Though it has been closed for six years, the historic Chelsea Hotel is set to reopen its doors in 2017. The Chelsea Hotel was first built in 1883 as a private co-op, but it found its niche as a hotel in 1905. This New York City landmark has hosted dozens of artists, singers, and writers, including Jimi Hendrix, Patti Smith, and Arthur C. Clarke.
The Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre, also known as the UCB Theatre, has become a prominent Chelsea attraction for comedy-lovers. Comics are able to learn various skills, such as writing and improv. The UCB Theatre offers nightly performances that feature students, founders, and even some celebrities.
A main component of Chelsea’s charm is its many art galleries and museums. These galleries host dozens of big name artists, as well as upcoming, new artists looking for their big break.
