Explore two old industrial areas that have evolved into the hottest new destinations in Manhattan. Discover gourmet food shops, ethnic restaurants, and boutique shops.

 

The Meatpacking District is an old industrial area in the Far West Village that has transformed into a neighborhood for dining, shopping, art galleries, night spots, and cutting edge hotels. There were originally over 100 meatpacking facilities serving restaurants and food shops throughout NYC and now there are only 15.

Some of the City’s swankiest nightclubs are also in the cobble-stoned Meatpacking District.

 

Chelsea Market is an enormous Wholesale/Retail Food complex that takes up an entire city block. In 1898 it was the original Nabisco Bakery where the Oreo Cookie was created. It now houses 12 of New York City's finest specialty food shops. You will learn about its history, view original artwork and granite sculptors from local New York artists, and learn how it became the ultimate indoor food shopping destination.
