Manhattan Apartment Rental Info
Chelsea (Manhattan Apartments) Neighborhood Information for Apartment Renters
Chelsea has seen one of the most noticeable transformations in Manhattan in recent times. The older tree-lined residential streets, graced with brownstones and townhouses, are clustered in the 20s, while many new luxury high rises have been constructed with Hudson River views. This is not a transient neighborhood, and few apartments turn over for rent. However, Rent-Direct.com has maintained relationships with the key Chelsea landlords so we know where to find the vacancies.
Chelsea is the most gay-friendly neighborhood in Manhattan, and if you're single of any persuasion, you'll be comfortable here. Families might have to hunt up playmates in the family-friendly Upper West Side, which is just straight uptown. This is a creative hub: many art galleries have relocated here from SoHo, and you'll find an ample selection of clubs and fun restaurants.
