Chelsea Market

Here's a nice place to go if you are craving something sweet. The Chelsea Market at Ninth Avenue and 15th Street is home to many good bakeries and some nice food shops. I always enjoy a stroll through this place. I think it used to be some sort of factory, turned into an indoor market. One of the nice things about New York! (Notice their ghostly Halloween decoration under the clock?)

It looks inviting, any shots of the stalls. I'll have to google it.

I wish I'd known about this place. I would have had a peek. It does look inviting and it's got bakeries. Thanks Lori.

I love how NY takes old buildings and reuses them. Our city just mows them over and builds new buildings. :(

A good modern use for this old factory. I clicked to enlarge the photo to see the halloween decoration and I spyed the giant pumpkins on the stall in the background :)

Contrary to Greg's thoughts, I always thought the city lagged behind other smaller cities when it came to adaptive re-use of older buildings. But no matter, like Chelsea Market, have not been for a long time. Like how you used the "hole in the wall" to frame your view.

I love browsing through markets like this. You made this one look old and interesting!
