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.

Chelsea was one of my favorite areas of manhattan.
We didn't spend a whole lot of time there, but we did enjoy what we experienced.
We also got rained on, its certainly an area we'd go back to again.
this large bike escaped us, I too would have grabbed a photo of this. love the architecture and style of the photo as it depicts NY well.
thanks for the kind words on my plane shot, i have many more...i'll try to clone out the wires better :)

Interesting difference between light and shadow; I like also the composition.

It's clearly a living museum. I love the tenement and office buildings interspersed, some with fire escape stairs, others not. There is probably a code according to how high the building rises. Your note is wonderfully informative, as usual.
Warm regards and have a good week.

Congrats and TFS

This is a fine capture isolating the details well against the spotless blue sky. Well managed light and shadow in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing and have a nice day.
