I had never been to Chelsea Market before. Completed in 1997, Chelsea Market has become a meeting destination for numerous New Yorkers and tourists. Although I visited Chelsea numerous times for art exhibits, to photograph landmark buildings and to walk the High Line, I never ventured to the fabulous food court/ shopping area located in the old National Biscuit Company factory: home of Oreo cookies. A lovely and talented young artist friend who attends SVA invited me to Chelsea Market for lunch a few weeks ago. I was struck by the wonderful use of old machinery and industrial equipment as decor for the au courant dining establishments; shops and great get-together indoor spaces.
