Growing three times faster than the rest of Manhattan and the largest development site in the United States, Hudson Yards’ neighborhood has become a magnet for young and affluent professionals. Fueled by the cultural and creative vibrancy of the West Chelsea Gallery District to the south and visitors to the High Line, Hudson Yards is shifting the center of gravity north in the new West Chelsea.
With over four million visitors annually, the High Line has stimulated the development of world-class architecture, 5-star restaurants and hip boutique hotels along its path, helping West Chelsea evolve into the city’s largest and most vibrant gallery district. This inspired urban park provides breathtaking views and sweeping panoramas of the Hudson River to the west and Manhattan to the east. With an entry at West 28th, the High Line is the core of the New West Chelsea. From the Whitney Museum at the High Line’s southern entrance, visitors and patrons of the arts can walk north from the Meatpacking shopping area, visit many of the world’s best galleries, and finish in Hudson Yards. Or, they can take the “Art Express”, the 7 subway extension at Hudson Yards, and walk south through the West Chelsea Gallery District with over 250 art galleries.
The Art Express - the #7 extension to Hudson Yards - links all the city’s main gallery districts to West Chelsea, from the new Harlem District to the Lower East Side to DUMBO and Bushwick and beyond. Visiting the new West Chelsea is now a quick and easy excursion. Visitors to The Met uptown or MoMA in midtown or PS1 in Queens can be perusing New York’s premiere galleries in West Chelsea in a matter of minutes. When Hudson Yards’ “Hudson Park & Boulevard” is completed in 2018, the West Chelsea Gallery District will be a short five minute stroll from the station.
While the numbers of galleries in West Chelsea has slightly receded since 2008, their quality has dramatically increased with the infusion of uptown and out-of-town galleries, as well as dealers and buyers from Europe and Asia. The new West Chelsea has become a dynamic, diverse and cosmopolitan hub for a broad spectrum of art: from contemporary to ancient, and a mecca for collectors and patrons worldwide. Almost 2,000 new luxury and super-luxury individual residences, combined with the influx of traffic from the High Line, has helped make the area between West 26th and Hudson Yards the settled epicenter of the gallery district, the new center of gravity into the 21st-century. These 15 new spaces, slated to be completed in late 2017, will further energize the area. Join this exclusive array of properties today.
