  • A wonderful place to eat, many different kitchens and lots of choice. Not only food but also quaint little shops where you can buy beautiful stuff. An absolute must, is located next to the High-Line behind the Google building.

  • Great food, great atmosphere interesting selection of goods and everyone there is cool and relatively friendly as these types of places attract the adventurous friendly type. Bit expensive though but to be expected from these hip market establishments. Also close to the High Line and a great view of the Hudson! Great place to spend your time if you have any in NYC. Worth a visit if you haven't been and worth if you have been.
  • This was my first time visiting and I absolutely loved it! It was recommended by a friend and we made time to go as a last minute "why not" at the end of our trip. This place is pretty huge and is absolutely full of a ton of different food places! You can find everything from brownies and Halva to Asian noodles and sandwiches. There are also little groceries, kitchen stores, book store, clothing, decor and artists wares. It's open every day of the week which makes it very convenient.
  • We had an enjoyable time at Chelsea Market. Passed through many shops until we found things made in NYC though. If you like fresh seafood, I recommend the fish market. The oysters are delicious and well priced. We didn't hit the sushi bar or the fish mongers but things looked and smelled great. We also got jams and pastries at Sarabeth's. The chocolate cookies by the cash register were somehow light and densely chocolaty at the same time.
  • Loved this place. It is very cute, they had all kind of nice places to order food. All fresh made. The only thing was that it was really crowded. There were no tables available to sit on. We had to wait 30+ minutes for our fresh made noodle soup, but it was great! And we just eat it in the high line park anyway.
  • Very busy shopping, food and business center. Easy access to the High Line. Guided tours of the building and area. Part of the building was the National Biscuit Company with the original oven housings where Orieo Cookies were backed. Distinctive, original floors. Old brick. Generally interesting place.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
