Travel: New York Day 2 (Chelsea Market Shopping)

Well… after a 22 hour day chock-full of activities, we had a late start to our second day. To all my foodies, listen up. Our first stop was an absolute must. We headed to the Chelsea Market, where you could easily spend hours snacking, shopping, and people-watching. We had some orange chocolate and strawberry gelato (respectively). Both flavors were extremely rich, although the chocolate was slightly creamier. Next time, I’d love to try it on the brioche for a gelato sandwich (noted).


The area is also home to the High Line, an elevated park built along old railroad tracks. Here, you’ll experience plenty of places to sit down, relax or grab more gelato.


Shockingly, even after the abundance of food, we headed back to Greenwich Village for Joe’s Famous pizza. Hey, how could we go to New York and NOT have pizza?!

The remainder of our day was spent doing ultra-touristy things, like Wall Street, Battery Park and the Statue of Liberty (from afar). We also made sure to visit the 9/11 Memorial as well. These all could have been given much more attention and time if allowed. Unfortunately, we were in such a rush to capture as much as we could. Nonetheless, there were some powerful moments as we made our way through this part of the city.

After yet another busy day, we decided to stay near Times Square for dinner. Afterward, we headed to the Rockefeller Center, St. Patrick’s Cathedral and Radio City.
