Four Reasons to go to Chelsea Market on your next trip to NYC

On the Go

If you’re planning a trip to New York, there’s probably plenty already on your to-do list: Times Square, Broadway Shows, the Statue of Liberty—New York offers a lot of options. But if you’re looking for a place to get food, shopping and (bonus!) stay inside, away from the winter cold or summer heat, nothing beats the appeal of Chelsea Market.

Hey.

Right on the Hudson River, Chelsea market is chock-full of fishies, and you can choose exactly what you’re looking for. A fancy lobster roll that you’ll dream about for weeks? Fish you can take back to your Air BNB apartment and cook yourself? A lobster that comes with rubber gloves so you can stand at a table and rip it apart with your hands? It’s all here, and if you love fish, you’re going to be very pleased about it. I recommend the baked mussels and the lobster roll at Cull & Pistol  but if you’re short on time, you can go next door to The Lobster Place and get your roll to-go.

…You’re in a group

Okay, so maybe you don’t share my passion for seafood, or your friend/sister/travel companion doesn’t—don’t despair! The advantage of heading to Chelsea Market for lunch is that everyone will leave happy. There’s something for everyone, from tacos to Cambodian sandwiches  so your whole group will leave happy. Make a smorgasbord day of it and see how many new things you can try.

The interior of Chelsea Market is endlessly cool, and you will feel totally inspired to infuse your home with some reclaimed wood, exposed brick or abundant twinkle lights. (A border of wine corks on a wall of subway tiles? Amazing.) The shops inside include everything from Anthropologie to Artists & Fleas, a pop-up indoor flea market, so you’re sure to find jewelry, fashion and decor options to bring home a hint of that inspiring Chelsea Market aesthetic.

…You want a full day of exploring

It’s true in real estate and in travel: location, location, location. Chelsea market is an awesome place to start a full day of exploring. Chelsea is an area that’s generally somewhat off the tourist path, but offers a lot to do and see, especially if you’re the type to wander all day, popping in and out of shops and restaurants. Walk outside of Chelsea Market and right onto the high line, one of New York’s coolest parks, built on an old elevated train line. From there, meander to the Standard hotel, where you can grab a drink with an amazing view of the Hudson river and all of downtown. In this area, you’re in a great spot to do some shopping or find a cool restaurant for dinner.
