Exploring Chelsea: The History, the Art & the Highline

  • This location is shown only to members

This fun meetup will trace the area's varied history, from its days as a shopping emporium, wealthy suburb, early bohemia, theatre district and magnet for writers, to today's capital of the contemporary art world and one of the city's most desirable residential neighborhoods with everything from charming 19th century townhouses to post-modern architecture. We'll visit a a gallery or two and cap off our walk with a guided High Line experience.... there's so much that can been seen from there!

    Not slated as yet for this meetup (wait-listed), but I was in Chelsea today visiting cousins. It is such a fun neighborhood and with Hank leading the group, I'm sure it will be great. Hope I get to go and if not, I hope you all have fun!
