Add The Gansevoort Market to Your List of Places to Visit


We’ve often heard that a bad day in NYC is better than a good day anywhere else, and we’re here to tell you… this couldn’t be more true. Even on the worst of days (think: humidity & crowded subways), we couldn’t imagine living anywhere else. With this in mind, meet our new series, The City, in which we’ll introduce you to the best of the concrete jungle. From restaurants, museums, and everything in between, these are the places you need to know whether you’re a New Yorker yourself or simply visiting.

What’s the latest New York City backdrop to blow up on Instagram? The Gansevoort Market, of course!

The 8,000-square-foot storage space at 52 Gansevoort St turned foodie destination is Meatpacking’s new hot spot. Home to 22 unique vendors, the food-hall serves everything from tacos to sweatpants—yes, sweatpants.

As self-proclaimed gourmands, our photographer Chris and I surveyed the scene all while sampling the most exotic offerings. Food and trinkets aside, we have to say that this place, one o’clock on a Wednesday afternoon, beats any day at Chelsea Market. The space is bustling, sure, but nowhere near overwhelmingly crowded. It is perfectly okay to tuck your elbows away because no shoving, sweating, or grunting is needed to weave through crowds of people.

So, if you’re ever in the neighborhood doing touristy things—ahem, the Highline and Danzinger Gallery—you might as well skip the mass and head on over here. Your stomach and patience will thank you. Seriously though, they’ve got lobster rolls sans the crowd. Can I get a holler?

Why I Fast on Mondays

Monday: oh, the duality of it. I love Monday and I also hate it with a deep passion. I hate that it will take a full 5 days for the weekend/nachos to arrive. I hate that I have to answer my emails. I hate that my alarm goes off and wakes me from my Sunday slumber. Yet, once I’m conscious I remember that I love waking up early on a summer Monday, hitting the streets before 8am when the city is still sleepy and heading out for a slow sweat at SLT. I love hitting the re-set button and having another chance to do and be. I also love fasting on Mondays, my chosen day of the week to detox until dinnertime (if you’re forced to begin your week, you may as well dive in head first).
