In 1869, the world’s first elevated train was erected along Ninth Avenue, which sparked the development of warehouses, lumber yards and industry in Chelsea. The abandoned stretch was recently transformed into the High Line — a park in the air — and the area is home to luxury shopping, from Diane Von Furstenberg to Alexander McQueen, and high-end dining. But you can find hidden gems that are accessible to many, like a slice at Artichoke Pizza, a beer along the Hudson River and a stroll through one of the many art galleries.
