The West Chelsea area in New York, NY has changed over the years from a manufacturing and distribution hub to an arts colony. Art galleries, creative / media offices and photo / film studios abound. The newest jewel in the crown of New York City Parks is Highline Park.

More Art Galleries Than You Can Shake a Stick At

Doing location research lately looking for an art gallery in New York City with a certain architectural element to use as a location for a photo shoot and stumbled on Chelsea Art Galleries.

Holy Guacamole!

I know there was always a considerable number of art galleries in NYC, particularly in Soho (at least since maybe the 70’s) – it’s like there has been an EXPLOSION of art galleries in West Chelsea!

I like the way Chelsea Art Galleries presents their database street – by street.
