Chelsea Market

Man, I wish I started writing about my adventures in New York earlier, cause now I’m weeks behind. But better late than never, right? 😛

On 6/14 I went to Chelsea Market with my lovely friend Justine. This place is best described through the following photos. It’s like a giant food mall inside a wooden yet industrial-looking space with a very cool vibe. In fact, the interior reminds me of an old London train station (think Harry Potter or something).

See, doesn’t this remind you of a train station platform?

We ended up eating brunch at Friedman’s then wandering (and taking photos, of course) through all the stores.

Of course I had to take pictures of classic NY icons.

The oxymoron of a cast iron heart kind of amuses me.

I tried these mini donuts from the Doughnuttery. They were so small that I could eat each in one bite! You can even customize them by dipping them in different sugars. I think I picked chocolate and glazed…

I’m still trying my hand at taking photos of people. It’s weird cause I feel ok meeting new people/classmates, but then I get so shy and scared of approaching strangers to ask if I could take their photo! Yet it pays off every time…

Look at all those spices! Spices and Tease.

We were inside this ridiculously cute store, Eleni’s, and took many photos of its pastries.

After Chelsea Market, I took Justine right above to The High Line. It’s a mile-and-half long park built on old railroad tracks.

Finally, we walked down to the river and enjoyed the fresh Hudson spray 😛
