27th Street is a prominent street in Manhattan's Chelsea neighborhood. 27th Street runs East to West, but is most noted for its strip between 10th and 11th Avenues, known as Club Row because 27th Street features numerous nightclubs and lounges.
Some of the most notable venues are Marquee, Bungalow 8, Suzie Wong, Cain, Guesthouse, Pink Elephant, and Home.
In recent years, the nightclubs on West 27th Street have dealt with some stiff competition from Manhattan's Meatpacking District about fifteen blocks south and also other venues in downtown Manhattan.
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. 27th Street passes one block north Madison Square Park and culminates at Bellevue Hospital Center on 1st Avenue.
