Chelsea Market History Lesson

I love the building I work in. It’s breathes creativity and and testifies to it’s vivacity every day I walk through. Now the Times offers a primer on the history of Chelsea Market: From Oreos and Mallomars to Today’s Chelsea Market

AT the National Biscuit Company complex, begun in the 1890’s in what is now west Chelsea, the ovens baked everything from Saltines to Oreos. Those ovens went cold a half century ago, when the company moved out, but newer ovens have been working over the last decade in part of that old complex – at Chelsea Market, from Ninth to 10th Avenue and 15th to 16th Street. A visit to the market offers ghostly evocations of the site’s history.
