Land Uses
West Chelsea is an area in transition. Manufacturing uses, especially in the central and southern portions of the area, have in large part given way to auto-related uses, including auto-repair, parking, and vehicle storage. A significant number of commercial uses, primarily in the form of art galleries and museums, have located on the midblocks and along Eleventh Avenue. Residential use is heaviest to the east of Tenth Avenue within the Chelsea Historic District and in the Fulton and Chelsea/Elliot Houses. Additional residential use, a result of the 1999 rezoning, can be seen along the West 23rd Street corridor between Tenth and Eleventh Avenues.
