Every few months FIT Fashion Institute of Technology changes their themed display of mostly vintage clothes. When I have time to see the latest show it never disappoints. You'll also run into fewer people than you see at paid for exhibitions. You may even be...More

After lunching with a friend in Chelsea, she recommended I stop by to see the exhibit before leaving the area. It is small but free, and interesting even if you're not a fashionista!

There is always something interesting to see at this museum. Small but worth a visit. Especially if you like fashion.

There was an interesting exhibit of work by African-American designers. But that was really the extent of the museum. Okay for mane a half hour.

The current show at this museum is wonderful. From the wedding gowns to the funky men's outfits you get a real sense of how anyone (in this case African Americans) must persevere in making their talents shine in the spotlight. The descriptions and videos help...More

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
