The temperature's rising, baby, and there's no better time than now to get out and explore one of our favorite neighborhoods in the city. Whether you're adrenaline-seeking or looking to kick back with an icy drink in hand, we've got you covered with our top 5 ways to spend a perfect summer day in Chelsea!
Artists & Fleas Family-tested and VERY approved, Trapeze School New York is the perfect way to get your heart racing and your circus skills on point. The instructors are incredible, the views are astounding (you can see the roof of the Chelsea Piers), and you get to say you flew on a trapeze. Perfect.
Cool off and get lost in the stacks of independent artist's books at Printed Matter. They are the the world's leading non-profit organization dedicated to the dissemination, understanding and appreciation of artists' books. You are guaranteed to fall in love with these pieces of art – and the organization itself.
Speaking of cooling off, head to Chelsea Market and eat everything! Start with natural fruit deliciousness at People's Pops (when it's fruit, it's ok to eat dessert first). You can truly wander the market and give your tastebuds a major treat.
Shop Artists & Fleas inside the Chelsea Market for treasure hunting, great vibes and unique market finds you can't live without.
Ready for a summertime cocktail? Head to the Rusty Knot for tiki vibes, vintage lawn style furniture, snacks and great drinks. Our tip: snag a seat on one of the comfy couches facing the rive for a killer view of the sunset. Oh, and they have a pool table and jukebox – bonus!
