The map says that the three of you are in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City for your 30 Plus Teams Tour .
But you really aren’t .
The sign on the lamppost tells you that you’re in an area known as ” The Meatpacking District . ”
Today this area has trendy shops , restaurants , and hotels .
Before the Civil War , it was a residential area of the city .
In the 1900s , that all changed .
It became the home of more than 250 slaughterhouses and meatpacking plants .
Therefore , the name , ” The Meatpacking District . ”
Today , the three of you are going to the building that used to be known as the National Biscuit Company Factory Building .
It’s better known as Nabisco and they gave us Oreo cookies among other snacks .
This building is now the home of the Chelsea Market , and they just don’t make snacks here anymore .
They make snacks and a whole lot of other things .
It’s a retail area with restaurants , wine shops , spice stores and many businesses as well as television shows .
One of the businesses inside of the of the Chelsea Market really excites the three of you .
It’s the headquarters of MLB . com , which is the official website of Major League Baseball .
The three of you are looking at the Chelsea Market directory .
You all just don’t know where to go first .
They even have a regular supermarket at Chelsea Market , so that’s a start .
Instead , the three of you are going to get some Thai food .
This place seemed to have everything .
There was one more place that you all had to visit after the three of you had a bite to eat at the Thai restaurant .
It was the little souvenir stand that was right by the exit door .
The three of you needed to end your day with just a little reminder of where you spent this part of your 30 Plus Teams Tour of New York City – Chelsea Market .
