10. The Chelseaflea Market
Chelsea Market, an enclosed shopping area between 11th Ave. and 9th Ave. around 15th St., is massive enough to cover two entire blocks. It can be fun shopping in a place that’s large enough to be outdoors, but is yet a completely built-up, indoor space. While you can find practically every kind of shopping in Chelsea market, the 4000 square-foot flea market is one of its highlights. If you want a real sample of New York to take back home, you’ll find it here.
Certainly, New York has sites that have been world-famous forever, such as the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building, the UN and so on, but it is at its most charming in some of its lesser-known and steadily evolving newer attractions. What’s your favorite things to do in NYC?
