New York City is strikingly rectangular. Every building has straight, crisp edges and there seems to be nothing out of the ordinary when staring up at the city… except for this huge park right in the middle of it all. It never really occurred to me until this particular trip how unusual this was – to have nature in the middle of skyscrapers and commercial space.
Anyhow, if you’re looking for something to do Gansevoort Market is a small hipster place a few blocks down from Chelsea Market. Gansevoort has the same kind of vibe, but a different flair. It’s busy, but not nearly as busy as Chelsea. Each shop has its own individual taste and feel. Nothing more to say than that. Very family friendly too.
There’s a Tacombi truck there. The same restaurant I went to the morning after for breakfast (tacos). Normally I don’t like tacos but theirs is pretty good. I recommend the carnitas michoacana – one of the best tacos I’ve ever had.
Not sure if the hearts are always there. I was there the day after Valentine’s Day. Couples were still out and about.
