I've been to The Highline many times, but I've never followed it all the way to Chelsea Market. If you live in the New York City area and have never been, you're missing out!
This one's from The Highline. In case you've never heard of it or been, The Highline is a huge bridge that runs over the city-it used to be an old railroad, but now it's gorgeous. It's an awesome tourist destination if there's nice weather and you just want to walk and take in some scenery.
Chelsea Market is similar to a mall, but with very few to no commercial stores, which regular malls are full of. The Market has lotsa independent stores, bakeries, clothing stores, restaurants-you name it.
One level of the market sells things like records, some clothes and boots, and a ton of jewelry from stores I'd never heard of before. I picked up a really cool pin (which I'll show you in my next post) that's so fun and unique. Anything you get in Chelsea Market is really special, and you probably won't see anyone else wearing your finds.
The Highline store- complete with a restaurant, ice pop stands, art and things like t-shirts.
Chelsea Market Anthropologie (and a shameless mirror selfie, just cause).
Postman Books in Chelsea Market, which now ranks as one of my favorite bookstores. There's also a huge shelf of the employees' favorites, and each book was displayed with an index card hand-written by the employee that recommended the book about why the employee chose that book. It was so great. If you catch my drift.
I know this post wasn't really about the fashion...I went for 'comfortable and simple' instead of getting dressed up. But I hope this gets you over to Chelsea Market if you've never been. If you're anything like me, you won't regret it.
