Chelsea Market
It was disappointing walking all the way from Chinatown to the Nomadic Museum and being confronted with a HUGE line. We (Mass, Zan, Xiang, Salome) decided to make better use of our time and skip the museum. To make our journey worth it, Zan brought us to the Chelsea Market which was only a few streets up. Can't believe I never heard of this place until Saturday.

It's a converted Nabisco Factory that currently houses a variety of shops on the ground level and NY1, Major League Baseball, the Food Network, and Oxygen studios on the upper floors. Interesting fact... NABISCO stands for the National Biscuit Company! I didn't realize this until I was staring at the plaque pictured.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to going back and trying out some of the food there. I was so full from the night before at Minado, the dim sum in the morning and the power sized Mango a Go-Go that I didn't get anything to eat there. They also have free wi-fi! I'll be back sometime this week when I attempt to visit the Nomadic Museum again before it comes down on the sixth.

Check out the NYC Architecture site for more information and photos of this interesting space!
