Chelsea NYC, c. 1954

I'm hoping someone can offer me some local-colour advice for something I'm writing... Any help is appreciated.

---Does anyone know what the Chelsea district of NYC was like c. 1954... Any noted local bars, clubs, galleries, landmarks...?

---Any thoughts on what seriously experimental or avant-garde jazz would've been around in NYC c. 1954? What kinds of avant-garde jazz would a Barnard/Columbia co-ed have been likely to listen to or go hear c. 1954?

Thanks!
