IN THE SPOTLIGHT
Around Hudson Yards
The Cultural Coast Soak up the best of the New York creative world along the West Side expanse that art insiders are calling the cultural coast. Hudson Yards sits at the center a formidable arts district that includes the recently relocated Whitney
Museum and Chelsea’s renowned gallery district, along with interactive experiences like Sleep No More at The McKittrick Hotel.
The Curated City
West Chelsea Galleries New York’s most artistic enclave is steps from Hudson Yards. West Chelsea is home to 350 leading galleries, including Gagosian Gallery, Matthew Marks and David Zwirner. Thriving icons of New York’s growing art scene, the galleries occupy converted
warehouses and lofts throughout the neighborhood around Hudson Yards.
Elevate Life in New York
High Line One of the most revolutionary park experiences in the world, the 1.5-mile High Line connects Hudson Yards with Chelsea’s most interesting neighborhoods via a plant-lined, art-immersed urban promenade. Designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the parkway connects directly to the 15 Hudson Yards residential building, also designed by the visionary architecture firm, completing the team’s west side vision and drawing together the natural aesthetics and urban history of the area.
Culture and Cobblestones
Meatpacking District Capturing the essence of vintage New York, the Meatpacking District brings together high-end shopping, hip hotels and world-class entertainment in converted brick warehouses along cobblestone streets beside the Hudson River. Named for the butchers who long worked here, the neighborhood is now a luxury destination, with trendy nightclubs, the new Whitney Museum and fashion icons, including curated upscale retailer Jeffery and the global headquarters for Diane von Furstenberg.
The World in Reach
Accessibility No matter the method of transit, Hudson Yards is the region’s most connected area, accessible by car, helicopter, ferry and all methods of public transportation. The new Number 7 subway station offers residents a crosstown link to every major north-south transit line in Manhattan, including a direct three-stop trip to Grand Central Station. The first new subway station to open in New York in 25 years, the new Hudson Yards Subway Station includes vibrant mosaic murals, bright lighting and entrances protected by sweeping glass canopies to match the curved landscaping of Hudson Park. Hudson Yards is also well situated for travelers, with easy access to the Lincoln Tunnel and Penn Station.
The Future of Learning
Avenues School Set students on the best path for success at Avenues School, the sought-after international private school blocks from Hudson Yards at 26th Street and 10th Avenue. The integrated bilingual curriculum — which utilizes world-class technology and the best instructors — teaches students in English and their choice of Spanish or Mandarin, from early learning through high school.
High Line Phase 3 Opening
The High Line Opens Its Third and Final Phase (New York Times) The final phase of the High Line has opened, with a park space that earned raves from New York Times architecture critic Michael Kimmelman: “If the newest, last stretch of the High Line doesn’t make you fall in love with New York all over again, I really don’t know what to say.”
Chelsea One of Manhattan’s most sought-after neighborhoods, Chelsea brings together dynamic art institutions, top-tier shopping and world-renowned restaurants, all set along historic tree-lined brownstone blocks. Unrivaled for its cultural offerings, Chelsea lures visitors from around the globe to its hundreds of art galleries, as well as the High Line, the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre, the Joyce Theater and Chelsea Market.
