Top Five Buildings This Week in Chelsea Top Five Buildings This Week in Chelsea
The rich and diverse Chelsea neighborhood is easily one of the most desirable places to live in NYC right now. It is bounded by 14th and 34th streets to the south and north and runs from the west side of Fifth Avenue to the Hudson River. From elegant brownstones and historic residential conversion to new architectural masterpieces - Chelsea has it all. There's also plenty of attractions like Chelsea Piers, the Rubin Museum of Art, and the newly built High Line Park, which is situated on a long stretch of elevated railroad tracks. Chelsea has become increasingly popular for creative and technology professionals due to its close proximity to Silicon Alley, Google's offices between 15th and 16th streets, and Penn Station.

Chelsea currently has 442 units for sale. The median price of condos is $3.45M and the median price of co-ops is $1.062M. The top ten Chelsea buildings on CityRealty right now are:
