START SPREADING THE NEWS – NEW YORK CITY – CHELSEA MARKET

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 .
