The Agora Gallery was great. It's off the beaten path, but filled with really great art: modern, classic, and undescribable. It has a small first floor and an even-more-hidden second floor accessible by an elevator outside the gallery. Upstairs, there's an even greater selection of art, along with postcards and magazines filled with art. Make sure they're open with an... More

A large, spacious Chelsea gallery with an interesting selection of contemporary art. Is it the best one in Chelsea? Probably not, but definitely Top 10 and worth seeing!

Agora is a stand-out of the Chelsea art scene - and in July 2015 will stage an exhibition of highly regarded West Australian artist, Krim Benterrak. His work will blast Kimberley colours into NYC with power of the Australian sun and sky and water... not to be missed! I was at Agora in July 2014 and loved it - great... More

Visited this gallery which was upstairs. Already discouraged due to the muggy hot July weather in Manhattan; but upon reaching the summit of the stairs, there was a utopia of colorful emotions to my surprise. What a hidden Gem! We got to experience champagne on a beer budget. Absolutely loved the abstracts by Nancy Stella Galliano. Will definitely go back... More

We nearly didn't go in here as it was the end of the day and we'd been visiting galleries for some time, but we were glad we did - some really wonderful art and a lovely space.

We walked into many galleries during our stay in New York and Agora was the best. Staff were friendly and not at all pushy. The gallery space is large, attractive and well lit, displaying the art to the best advantage. We were at Agora during a photography exhibition which we enjoyed very much. Will certainly visit again on our next... More

I had a project for a class I was taking that required I explore a few different types of art institutions. The staff was super helpful and provided me with an exhibition catalog to help me finish my project. The gallery carries a broad range of artists and they even had Nathan Sawaya Lego art pieces on display. So cool.

This is quite a large well presented gallery. On an opening night they usually have three different exhibitions in different areas. Google when they are on and just turn up for an interesting pre dinner event. I would be impressed if my date took me as as surprise. Lots of people and Angela always has interesting art presented.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighbourhood Profile
Chelsea
Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s jewels when it comes to neighbourhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighbourhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost every night of the week and countless exhibits to explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York City, it’s also a diverse district with a vibrant nightlife scene. The opening of the High Line, an abandoned elevated train track transformed into a world-class pedestrian park, gave this neighbourhood new life as a tourist destination. The High Line provides visitors with a tranquil, elevated space with incomparable views, providing an unparalleled way to experience the city.
