Leading Lines, Chelsea Market

Leading Lines, Chelsea Market – New York, New York

After an unplanned but rewarding detour at Little Island, another unexpected photo spot temporarily diverted my plans. A short walk from the island park, I discovered a converted brick factory on 15th Street. Now a food hall, shopping mall, and offices, Chelsea Market was once a factory for the National Biscuit Company (aka. Nabisco). Nabisco invented and manufactured the Oreo cookie in this 1890s structure.

My friend Susie had mentioned Chelsea Market as a possible dinner spot, but we opted for Juniors in midtown. The next day, I accidentally walked past the market and peeked inside. Unexpected was the vibrant and lightly restored character-filled interior. It had all the hallmarks of a worthwhile architectural and street photography destination.

This long, covered arcade greeted me as I entered from 10th Avenue. Its industrial roots are part of an aesthetic that adds a dimension beyond typical retail establishments and is perfect for creating leading lines. I used the 51MP Fuji GFX 50S II to revel in the details.
