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, NoFeeRentDirect.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.
