Chelsea is a neighborhood on the West Side of the borough of Manhattan in New York City. The district's boundaries are roughly 14th Street to the south, 30th Street to the north, the western boundary of the Ladies' Mile Historic District – which lies between the Avenue of the Americas (Sixth Avenue) and Seventh Avenue – to the east, and the Hudson River and West Street to the west. To the north of Chelsea is the neighborhood of Hell's Kitchen, also known as "Clinton," to the northeast is the Garment District, to the east are NoMad and the Flatiron District, to the southwest is the Meatpacking District and to the southeast is the West Village.
The West Village is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Manhattan. The area is bounded by the Hudson River on the west and either Sixth Avenue or Seventh Avenue on the east, extending from 14th Street down to Houston Street. The Far West Village extends from the Hudson River to Hudson Street. Bordering neighborhoods include Chelsea to the north, the South Village, and the newly invented (2009) area called Hudson Square to the south, and Greenwich Village to the east. The neighborhood is primarily residential, with a multitude of small restaurants, shops and services. The area is part of Manhattan Community Board 2 and the Sixth Precinct of the New York Police Department. The Sixth Precinct also covers an area east of the West Village between Sixth Avenue and Broadway from Houston to 14th Street.
The neighborhood is primarily residential, with a mix of tenements, apartment blocks, city housing projects, townhouses and renovated rowhouses, and its many retail businesses reflect the ethnic and social diversity of the population. The western part of Chelsea has become a center of the New York art world, with many art galleries located in both new buildings and rehabilitated warehouses.
The West Village looks like a European small town in the middle of the nation's biggest city. Don't be fooled by this neighborhood's quaint storefronts and their equally adorable names—the West Village is a fast-paced place. Shoppers, diners, and art aficionados flock here in droves. Despite its foot-traffic, the West Village manages to maintain an intimate vibe that sets it apart from many other hustle-bustle New York City destinations.
Embodied by exquisite prewar brownstones and romantic winding streets, the West Village is one of the most storied of all New York City neighborhoods. Don't be surprised to find yourself at the corner of Waverly Place and Waverly Place, or to cross West 4th at West 12th Street: many of its tree-lined streets were established well before the more common grid system that exists above 14th Street, and follow the old cattle and horse trails created by early West Village settlers. Some streets are still paved with cobblestones, like of West 11th and Bank Streets. Long associated with quaint shops, artists' studios, cafes and eateries of all flavors, the West Village is home to such local fixtures as the Waverly Inn, Corner Bistro, White Horse Tavern and Magnolia Bakery. With buildings dating back to the early 1700s and just the right degree of modern edges, the West Village remains one of the most desirable locales in the entire city.
