I started this blog with one daughter, kept it up with the other, to spend time together doing something we enjoyed.
However, things change and people evolve. My daughters are older, busier, and not as interested in writing.
From now on this blog will be mostly mom with occasional contributions from my daughters and maybe even my husband.
Nothing else will change. We'll still focus on sharing fun places to go, fun things to do, and more, and we would  still love to hear your views too

Where-To-Go Wednesday - Chelsea Market

What: Chelsea Market

Where: 75 9th Avenue (between 15th and 16th Street)
            New York, New York

Who: All Ages

Our view: Chelsea Market is located at the site of the old National Biscuit Company. It is full of unique and interesting restaurants and shops. If you are tired of fast food and cookie cutter chain restaurants that are all basically the same, Chelsea Market is the place for you. They have everything from Hale and Hearty Soups to Amy's Bread to The Lobster Place . They also have authentic ethnic foods including Thai Food, Italian Food, and Mexican food. These are just a few examples of the restaurants and types of food you can find here. If you are interested in architecture, this is also the place for you. Instead of being just another modern looking building, Chelsea Market is full of brick walls and exposed pipes. It is made to resemble the factory that it used to be. There is even an artificial waterfall. Aside from the restaurants and stores, there is also office space in the floors above and many media and broadcast companies are located here including the Food Network. The Food Networks Studios are located here as well. Many but not all Food Network shows are taped here including Guy Fieri's Big Bite and Iron Chef. Unfortunately, however, Tours of the Food Network studios are not available nor are tickets to tapings of the shows available to the general public. Chelsea Market is open Monday to Saturday from 7am to 10pm and Sunday from 10am to 8pm. For more information about Chelsea Market go to chelseamarket.com.

And that's our view. Tune in tomorrow for another Talking Topic.
