27th Street

27th Street

27th Street is a prominent street in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. It runs East to West, but is most noted for its strip between 10th and 11th Avenues, known as Club Row because it features some of the world's most exclusive nightclubs and lounges. [Ryzik, Melena. [http://www.nytimes.com/2006/11/05/fashion/05dancing.html "Dance Hall Daze"] , "The New York Times", November 5, 2006. Accessed October 7, 2007. "On my first night out, after a cruise through club row, the area around West 27th Street that is home to cavernous venues like Crobar and dens of exclusivity like Bungalow 8, I hit the Lower East Side."]

Some of the most notable venues are Marquee, Bungalow 8, Suzie Wong, Cain, Guesthouse, Pink Elephant, and Home.

In recent years, West 27th Street has succumbed to stiff competition from Manhattan's Meatpacking District only about fifteen blocks south.

Heading East, 27th Street passes through Chelsea Park between 10th and 9th Avenues, with the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) on the corner of 8th. On Madison Avenue between 26th and 27th streets, on the site of the old Madison Square Garden, is the New York Life Building, built in 1928 and designed by Cass Gilbert, with a square tower topped by a striking gilded pyramid. Twenty-Seventh Street passes one block north Madison Square Park and culminates at Bellevue Hospital Center on 1st Avenue.
