One of the oldest Manhattan Neighborhoods, Chelsea is located on the west side, just below Midtown. The historic Chelsea/Hudson Yards neighborhood was founded by British Major Thomas Clarke in 1750, who named the neighborhood after Chelsea in London. The area is still home to many historic townhouses, and it also has modern buildings filled with condos and apartments.

Hudson Yards is the newest addition to the Chelsea neighborhood, and it’s the largest private real estate development in the United States. This development is located in the western part of Chelsea, near the Hudson River. Once it’s completed, it will have over 18 million square feet of commercial and residential space, and it will have more than 4,000 residences.
