From humble streets lined with warehouses to being one of the most desirable locations in the city to call home, Chelsea has a lot in store for you. This part of the city has got roots in the punk rock and art scenes and it shows — literally. Clubs, performance spaces, and art galleries abound in this part of Manhattan.

Our Top Chelsea Moving Tips

Starting at the most downtown edge of the neighborhood, Chelsea starts at 14th Street in Manhattan and goes north all the way to 34th street. To the east, it ends at 6th Avenue and runs to the Hudson River in the west. Neighboring areas include Hell’s Kitchen to the north and Greenwich Village to the south if you’re keen on venturing beyond these bounds. But, before you explore the rest of Manhattan, it’s wise to better know what’s in store for you in Chelsea:

  • Recreation. Living here will mean you have your pick of unique parks and places to break a sweat. For starters, you’ll want to get familiar with the High Line Park when it comes time for visitors to come your way. This elevated train track turned greenspace is a site to behold, boasting great views of the Chelsea skyline and city streets. But the quirky neighborhood spots don’t stop there. You, of course, could peruse the vintage finds and do some people watching at the year-round Chelsea Flea to get your daily steps in. You’ll also want to make time to enjoy Little Island, a floating park that opened to the public in May of 2021. It has open lawns, trees, and even a secret garden. Entry to the park is free for all, but reservations must be made after noon. If waterside is the right side, then make your way over to Chelsea Piers, a Hudson River-adjacent sports complex that features synthetic sports fields, an ice skating rink, golf driving range, fitness club, and much more.
  • Cost of living. Living in the city ain’t cheap and zooming in to examine costs from neighborhood to neighborhood, Chelsea is among the more expensive spots to call home. Among the abode types to consider, you’ll find housing options across the spectrum — shiny new condos give way to brick walk-up apartments and large apartment complexes. So what will it cost you to find an address? As a point of reference, renting a one-bedroom apartment will run you about $5,664 a month in the area. It’s up considerably, almost 25% from the previous year. Owning a home in Chelsea also comes with a hefty price tag; the current median listing price is set at a cool $2 million, which includes a median cost of $1,800 per square foot of space. The investment you make in where you lay your hat at night may be contrasted with what you’ll spend getting around. You may save a few coins when it comes to commuting to and from the area. You’ll have plenty of public transit options, from the MTA’s subways, buses and the Long Island Railroad. If you’d rather get along on just two wheels, it’s said that Chelsea has some of the safest bike lanes in the city along 8th and 9th avenues. If you don’t have a bike of your own, you can take advantage of the Citibike rental option.
  • Neighborhood noshes. This downtown neighborhood packs real variety onto its plates. You can find flavors of all kinds and at all different prices. Wake up with a sweet tooth? Grab a hole in a few freshly fried pastries at Doughnut Plant. If you’re looking for a unique gift for a friend, head over to Chelsea Market. Shopping can really work up an appetite, so make sure you make a pit stop between shops at Los Tacos no. 1 for an agua fresca and tacos. A meal later in the day may be a challenge to pin down because you’ll have so many choices. If you only have eyes for seafood, then make sure to make a stop at Seamore’s for their red curry mussels or a lobster roll. Or, if a thoughtful plate is more your type of menu, you can savor the flavor of ingredients grown sustainably from independent farmers at Cookshop. Wash it all down with a night at Pier 57’s City Winery for fine wines and performance space overlooking the Hudson River. You just can’t beat Chelsea flavors.
  • Exhibitions and entertainment. As a new Chelsea resident, it’s a must to better know the art scene in the area. There’s much to be discovered. You can even be a part of the show at the interactive Sleep No More performance. Set in an old hotel, you interact with other guests and the actors to uncover and piece together the storyline. If you’d like to keep on interacting with others, you’ll want to grab your dancing shoes and catch a performance or DJ set at The Shed. If you’d rather partake in the arts as a solo observer, there’s plenty of places to do that, too. There’s of course the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Rubin Museum of Art, showcasing the art and culture of the Himalayan regions. Don’t forget about the plethora of art galleries to enjoy as well, including the 20,000 square feet of exhibition space in Dia Chelsea. Soon, you’ll know where the neighborhood got its reputation.

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
