My son Sam took me to Chelsea Market, then to high line park nearby. We watched homemade jewelry in the making then each noshed a steamed 3 lb lobster with beer. So decadent n perfect. At the park, the natives were sunning themselves like turtles on this first warm day of spring. Great fun!

This place is packed with stalls serving food plus actual food markets. Check out the fish and Italian markets which are especially enticing. You can easily access the market from the High Line and on a nice day it is the perfect place to get take-out to eat on the High Line. The day we were at the market, the... More

Spent an afternoon with my girlfriends walking around Chelsea Market. There are many interesting shops and foods there. We had free samples from a few places and tasted a variety of vinegars and salts at the Filling Station. We bought some cookies from Eleni's and had lunch at Friedmans. The lamb burger was excellent. Chelsea Market is a great way... More

Get a smoothie from One Lucky Duck and a sushi from Beyond Sushi if you are healthy eater. You can have a steamed lobster. Baked goods from various bakeries. If you a chocolate lover, you can find all kinds of chocolate there. Their restroom-line is always very long. Make sure you go to a restroom before you get there.

We visited the Meat Packing District to walk the High Line, visit Chelsea Market (Home to the Food Network) and have some pie at Artichoke. All of this can be done quite easily in a few hours and provides a wonderful city experience

Don't come here hungry if you don't plan to eat! The smells from the food cooking and the bread baking makes your mouth water. Very interesting place with lots of fun shops to browse through. Excellent pastime anytime but especially on a rainy day if it is raining!

Chelsea Market is an eclectic brick building with an interesting past and a very promising future. It was the former Nabisco building where the Oreo cookie was invented. The upper floors house Youtube, Google, Oxygen and food production companies. The main floor is absolutely filled with wonderful choices of places to eat and shop. My daughter and I found some...

Located in a former late1800s National Biscuit Company bakery, Chelsea Market offers an interesting blend of shops, bars, and restaurants. There is also easy access to the High Line, a former rail line that served butchers in the area and is now a pedestrian walkway.
