  • Chelsea Click Your Activities!

    The NY Lottery says "You Gotta Be In It to Win It" When it comes to Chelsea's activities it can be said "You Gotta Know About It To Attend It"

    To that end this is Version 2.1 of the Chelsea Community Calendar( aka "Chelsea Click Your Activities") . It includes links to websites that describe:
    -Chelsea Calendars of Events
    -Chelsea Class Offerings
    -Chelsea Community Services

    and any other community activities/services that it make sense for Chelsea residents to know about. If you have any favorite Chelsea activities/services that aren't listed, just post a notice or write a review (either on this thread, or better yet on a new thread for maximum exposure ) and I'll add/link them when this gets updated.

    Area of Listings:
    Chelsea borders seem to be ill defined (see ) so let's just say they're 14th to 34th St, the Hudson River to 5th Ave. However if an activity is "adajacent to our "borders" it will be listed also.

        This is a terrific reading series! You may want to email them to get on their mailing list. The bookstore itself is quite small, so it's a good idea to RSVP ASAP is you want to go to one of their events.

            West Side Rail Yards and West Side Tenants Conference 10/13

            This week from the West Side Neighborhood Alliance:

            1)Tenants? Conference on Saturday! ( 10/13/2007 )
            2)What?s the deal with the Rail Yards?

            1)Tenants? Conference on Saturday!

            Join us this Saturday for the third annual West Side Tenants? Conference, which WSNA and Housing Conservation Coordinators are co-sponsoring with other neighborhood groups and elected officials.

            The conference is from 10:00 to 4:00 at Fordham University Law School , 140 W. 62nd Street , between Columbus and Amsterdam . We recommend you come at the beginning for a free breakfast and to hear the keynote address by City Council Speaker Christine Quinn!

            Please click here for more information, including a schedule of morning and afternoon workshops.

            The conference is free, of course, and breakfast and lunch are provided to all participants.

            Can you come on Saturday? Contact Ivette at HCC to RSVP: or 212-541-5996 x24.

            2)What?s the deal with the Rail Yards?

            Soon, you may be hearing in the news that developers are submitting bids for the West Side Rail Yards.

            You may remember those rail yards from such proposed boondoggles as the West Side Stadium, which many of our members worked very hard to defeat.

            It?s true: the MTA is now accepting bids for what developers will build on that site instead of a stadium. All the bids are expected to include housing and park land, but we have many questions of immediate interest to our community. Will there be required affordable housing? Will the park really be accessible to neighborhood residents, or will it just be for people in luxury buildings nearby? Will developers preserve the High Line on the rail yards or will they try to knock it down?

            The West Side Neighborhood Alliance will be involved throughout this very long process, advocating for required affordable housing and development that really serves the community.

            But before we can fight those battles, we have one that starts today: the MTA is receiving bids from various developers, but their current plan does not have any role for public input before they choose a winning bid. In fact, according to the current structure, they can keep all the bids a secret until they pick a winner.

            We don?t like that, here at the West Side Neighborhood Alliance. If the MTA doesn?t tell us what the developers are proposing, how can we weigh in about our needs? Please click here to see the letter we fired off to the MTA, demanding a public review of the bids.

            Do you want to get involved in our campaign for the West Side Rail Yards? Click here for more information.

                  Affordable Housing Development NYCHA Chelsea Sites Oct 16

                  New Affordable Housing Development On NYCHA Chelsea Sites

                  As part of the rezoning of West Chelsea, the Mayor, the City Council Speaker and Manhattan Community Board #4 negotiated an agreement to produce affordable housing. Part of that agreement included the development of affordable housing for moderate and middle income New Yorkers to be built on parking lots in the Eliot-Chelsea Houses (25th & 9th) and Fulton Houses (18th between 9th & 10th).
                  NYCHA and NYC HPD have now selected developers. The developers and HPD will be making an initial presentation to the public.

                  We urge NYCHA tenants and community residents to attend.

                          Visual AIDS Postcards From the Edge Benefit

                          Visual AIDS Postcards From the Edge Benefit
                          Artists Wanted
                          Visual AIDS invites artists to participate in our tenth annual Postcards From the Edge benefit. We are looking for artists to donate a 4"x6" original work on paper for the exhibition and sale. Painting, drawing, photography, printmaking and mixed media are all welcome. We are pleased to announce our host gallery is James Cohan Gallery.
                          DEADLINE is postmark Friday, November 9, 2007 (NO late entries)
                          Postcards From the Edge is a show and sale of original, postcard-sized artworks on paper by established and emerging artists. All artworks are $75 and sold on a first-come, first-served basis. The works are signed on the back and exhibited so that the artists' signatures cannot be seen. While buyers have a list of all participating artists, they don't know who created which piece until it is purchased and the signature is revealed. A collector might end up with a work by a famous artist or one they don't yet know. Either way, they walk away with a great piece of art while supporting Visual AIDS's important work.
                          If you would like to participate, please DOWNLOAD Artists Submission Forms here.
                          1. Create or attach your artwork on any 4"x6" heavy-weight paper (Recommended: 140lb watercolor paper or press board). Painting, drawing, printmaking, photography and mixed media are all welcome. One entry per artist
                          2. Sign and print name on the BACK only -- also indicate the top with an arrow.
                          3. Carefully package artwork. Do not wrap wet or sticky artwork. (Recommended: wrap artwork in wax paper and place between thin cardboard.)
                          4. Complete both submission forms.
                          5. Note: UNSOLD artwork will NOT be RETURNED, UNLESS a 6x9 self addressed, stamped envelope is included. Please attach proper postage for return of artwork (current US domestic postage for average 6 oz flat letter is $1.65) Visual AIDS is not responsible for lost or damaged artwork in the mail.
                          6. If you need confirmation that we received your artwork, please also send a self-addressed, stamped postcard with your submission.
                          7. Mail your artwork, submission forms and related forms postmarked by Friday, November 9, 2007 to:
                            Visual AIDS

                          If you cannot download submission forms and/or would like a blank Canson postcard mailed to you, please send a 6" x 9" SASE to Visual AIDS.
                          We appreciate your generous donation of artwork. Postcards From the Edge requires months of preparation and raises a substantial part of our annual budget. We are working to make the benefit more financially successful. In the past, many artists have enclosed $1, $5, $10 with their postcards, raising additional funds to help underwrite the benefit. Any and all donations are always greatly appreciated.
                          After the event, artists requesting return of unsold postcards and those requesting information about the collector of her/his artwork will receive notice in 4-6 weeks. Thanks in advance for your support.
                          Just For You!

                              Words can only get in the way as I try and describe the delicious grooving, movements, visuals, and energies that will combine on this night in this space.

                              This will include our second performance of our piece "All Hallow's Eve" with Phantomime. This is the story of a man who is calling to the ghost of his wife, while the veil between the living and dead is at its thinnest. He feels her near. What he does not know is that she is there calling to him for a sign as well. Neither knowing how to reach across the veil, both trying desperately before the time passes and the veil again grows thick.

                              It is our pleasure to have Kara Trott singing with us, formerly of Fluttr, Jacob Sirios on drums, Chris Baum on violin, Carlos Kampff on upright, Jason Cohen on keys, vocals and percussion and introducing Katy Georgio on tromBONE. That's right. Taking it to the next level.

                              We are on plugged in at the betwitching hour in the large room, and will be providing some unplugged ambient music in the chapel during the evening. The event begins at 10pm and goes 'til 3am.
                              $20 at the door or in advance (suggested through
