Situated right on the Hudson River and adjacent to the West Village and the Meatpacking District, West Chelsea is one of New York’s most vibrant neighborhoods. The area has long been famous for its restaurant scene, its bars and nightlife, and its art galleries that exhibit everything from old masters to avant-garde installations. The area is also home to two of the most iconic destinations the city has to offer: the urban Eden that is the High Line and the dazzling Hudson Yards.


This is an eminently liveable area, a place where you can leave your home at The Cortland and be at the local grocery store or your favorite café in a matter of minutes. Living on the waterfront is a truly enviable experience. Hudson River Park is a 500-acre, four-mile-long playground on both land and water, with tennis, jogging trails, basketball courts, skate parks, kayaking, sailing, and so much more—all just across the street from The Cortland.
