Photographer's Note

The neighborhood of Chelsea in Manhattan stretches from 14th Street to 30th Street (south to north), and from Sixth Avenue to the Hudson River (east to west). Many blocks are designated as a Historic District. Common sights in Chelsea are older-style tenement buildings and row houses, mixed with businesses and shops.

This neighborhood has a vibrant and young feeling, mixed with glimpses of the past, such as the mural in this photo. While businesses have come and gone, and many of the old ads have faded, the bicycle shop below this mural still survives. It has been in the neighborhood for more than forty years.

Some famous sights in Chelsea include: Chelsea Market, Chelsea Piers (a large sports complex), Highline Park, and the Chelsea Hotel, which has beautiful cast-iron work on the facade.

Here are some details on the corner of 14th Street and Sixth Avenue, as the afternoon shadows were starting to creep in.
