Welcome to West Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District
Mellow and raucous, quaint and sleekly contemporary, these downtown neighborhoods embody contradictory vibes. The West Village's twisting streets and well-preserved townhouses offer intimate spaces for dining, drinking and being a flaneur. The Meatpacking District has evolved into a modern kind of meat market, with trendy bars and clubs where Manhattan's young professionals go to see and be seen. To the north is Chelsea, home to art galleries and a vibrant gay scene. Tying these neighborhoods together is the High Line, a massive, snake-like park that stretches above them all.
