Property at a Glance: The Leo House

Named for Pope Leo XIII, who gifted much of the funding used to establish it in 1889, The Leo House was founded German immigrants to help their arriving countrymen. The passage of more than 125 years has seen The Leo House move from Battery Park to Chelsea and become an inn open to people of all faiths and nationalities.

  • Free buffet breakfast with housemade breads and pastries is served every day but Sunday.
  • Good to know: Each room has a private sink and toilet and either a private shower or access to a shared one.
  • Where to eat: nearby restaurants ranging from a meatball-centric eatery to a vegan one
  • Getting around: A subway within walking distance gets travelers to the Macy’s flagship store and Times Square in about 10 minutes and Central Park in about 20.

Chelsea: Hip, Artsy Neighborhood near Times Square

Rows of independent art galleries line the blocks of 25th and 26th streets in Chelsea, located just southwest of Midtown Manhattan. Throughout the neighborhood are more than 350 such spaces—mostly in converted warehouses and factories—contributing to the area’s elite status in the contemporary art world. In addition to visual arts, prominent dance venues such as The Joyce Theater and The Kitchen showcase eclectic performances ranging from ballet to traditional Indian choreography.

From Chelsea, you can easily walk to Midtown to catch a Broadway musical or watch basketball, hockey, or big-name musical acts at Madison Square Garden. A little farther up Broadway, Times Square buzzes with sparkling billboards, giant wraparound news tickers, and nonstop neon lights. Even the MTA station here glitters. Keep an eye out for One Times Square, the site of the annual New Year’s Eve ball drop. Other points of interest include the Paramount Building and the Empire State Building, where you can see the city from the King Kong–approved 86th-floor observation deck.
