You absolutely must visit Chelsea Market, if not for some fresh food shopping, then at least for something to eat. I highly recommend you picking up a bunch of little things from various locations. On my last visit, I started off with a Lobster Roll at no other then The Lobster Place. It was rather on the expensive side, but... More

If you are looking for somthing special to eat or buy some kitchen gadgets, it is a place for you. Also nice to take a walk, after a good meal, on the high line just next to it. Recommend to do on Sunday.

Nice place to visit, we never ate in here simply because there wasn't anywhere to sit and eat unless we went into the expensive restaurants at the entrances. We had been walking lots and wanted to sit down somewhere but it was packed and no seats. Excellent stop for food on the go and I can imagine it's delightful living... More

There are so many types of food to choose from that it gets a little difficult to actually choose. But don't forget to try The Doughnuttery for some mini doughtnuts, and try heir Paris Time. Amazing! And while you're in the area, might as well check out The High Line.

We really enjoyed the market. Not tons of shopping, but what they do have is unique. A great selection of food and a great wine bar. We could have surely spent some more money in some stores if we wouldn't have been flying home.

Chelsea Market is a tourist destination for sure, but do not let that deter you. It is best to go at an "off-peak" time, as it can get very crowded. If you are someone that appreciates food, you will enjoy the various shops. You can watch macaroni being made, smell fresh spices and teas, grab a bite to eat, and... More

Lots of eateries and shops, lovely atmosphere, but it was just too busy when we visited. Long queues were everywhere, even for loo. Look out for the spices stall, it's amazing. It was nice to escape from the heat (end of Sept). It feels very touristy.

Staying in Chelsea

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood life. The contemporary art scene is an integral part of the neighborhood’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 neighborhood 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.
