Grassy knolls and galleries define Chelsea -- but don't expect to spot them from the street. The High Line is a grass strip hovering 30 feet over 10th Ave, with wildflowers sprouting where railroad tracks used to be. Entrances every two blocks offer access to the High Line's bucolic paths and picnics in an outdoor ampitheatre. West of 10th Avenue, 200-plus galleries are nestled among the auto repair shops between 14th and 25th Streets. Occasionally, garage doorways have been cut away to reveal Yayoi Kusama's giant polka-dotted mushrooms and other modernist marvels. Breakthrough artistic talents await discovery inside industrial warehouses, especially at Friday evening receptions and openings the first Thursday of each month. To warm up for gallery walks and Eight Ave boutique trawls, hit the gyms, pool, batting cage, rock climbing wall and ice rink at Chelsea Piers.
