"Still elegant after all these years"

In a city where streets go in and out of fashion like skirt silhouettes, it can be hard to get attached to any one neighborhood. Luckily, Chelsea seems to have survived the malestrom of in-and-out and, like the Upper West or Upper East sides, established for itself a perennial reputation. More upscale than the gay scene around the West Village, which attracts its fair share of tourists and out-of-towners, this slice of Chelsea is also straight-friendly, with a collection of nightclubs, bars and restaurants that cater to the well-heeled of every orientation. This street in particular offers a wealth of options. Dining choices include the laid-back Italian Algreghetti Restaurant, and more definedly Chelsea-style Atelier du Chocolat and Restivo restaurant. When it comes to nightlife, choices include the standby Barracuda Bar and Highpoint Bar and Bistro. Transit here is largely good, with a number of metro and bus lines, although the further West you go, the less convenient things tend to be, as a general rule.

"Interesting places to eat - bring lots of cash"

This street goes smack into the middle of a plethora of expensive night clubs and restaurants, and perhaps the most entertaining (and interestingly themed) of these on this street is Aspen Restaurant and Lounge. The concept is obvious – the place is mean to look like a skiing cabin. The place is absolutely gorgeous and the food is pretty much what you would expect from such a trendy place – a pan American mix that involves avocados and goat cheese.

"A beautiful street with great art galleries."

W 22nd St in a street in Chelsea. It stretches from Broadway to the Hudson River. It is a residential street, with beautiful red brick buildings and townhouses. I walked there on a Sunday, and had a good feeling about this street. Between 8 Av and 10 Av, I mostly met families and people walking their dogs. That made me suppose that W 22nd St is a quiet street, perfect for families. Between 10 Av and 11 Av (where I was heading to) there is a long row of art galleries – the famous Chelsea art galleries. I am not sure whether there are apartments available in this part of the street, but it is worth to check it out.

"West 22nd Street"

Again, this street was generally unimpressive. Nearby Tuoro College didn't really add much to the neighborhood in terms of things to do and the big brown buildings get a bit redudant after a while I was generally unimpressed, but at least it's accessible and closer to other streets.

West 22th Street is close to the following metro stations: F, V at 23rd Street, R,W at 23rd Street, and is also near the PATH train to New Jersey. It is also accessible to many buses. Foot traffic is heavy, and it is a good neighborhood for all people!
