We are now entering Chelsea market from 9th street.


Old photographs of Chelsea market in the 1950's hanging at the entrance.


Staying in line to get some tacos from Los Tacos  No. 1,  a very popular traditional Mexican stall inside Chelsea Market.

Los Tacos  No. 1 was created after 3 close friends from Tijuana, Mexico and Brawley, California decides to take the Mexican taco to the east coast with a goal to bring authentic tacos to New York.

The First stand opened in 2013 bringing family recipe and fresh, simple, and tasteful ingredients straigh home to Chelsea Market.


Open kitchen so you can see how the food is prepared.


A cook cutting the meat from the rotisserie


The line move quickly as the whole operation ran like an well oiled machine with a 2 lined system.

First line: you order and then pay. 


The second line was for submitting your ticket to the cook behind the counter and then wait for your order to come out.


We were lucky to find a small counter to put down our food down.


We ordered a Carne Asada (grilled steak) and a Adobada (marinated pork) tacos.


Closer look at the Carne Asada tacos.

Chips and salsa.


Both Tacos were delicious and you can defitely tell they use the best ingredients.


It was really fun eating here.


Walking in New York City

We are now on Avenue of The Americas close to Union Square



Bryant Park


Bryant Park is a public park that is privately managed and is located between 5th Avenue and Avenue of the Americas (6th Avenue)


This is the western half of the park with a lawn and  shaded walkways.


St. Patrick Cathedral


We are in Midtown Manhattan.  St. Patrick Cathedral takes up a full city block bounded by Fifth Avenue to the west, 51st Street to the north, Madison Avenue to the east, and 50th Street to the south


The Cathedral was constructed starting in 1858 but work was halted in the early 1860s during the American Civil War.  the cathedral was completed in 1878 and dedicated on May 25, 1879.

Extensive restorations of the cathedral were conducted several times, including in the 1940s, 1970s, and 2010s.


We are entering the Cathedral from 5th Avenue.

St. Patrick’s Cathedral completed its massive $175 million renovation.  The work includes cleaning of the interior and exterior, restoration of the organ, pews, stained glass windows, and repairs to stonework and plasterwork. 


The entrance with a massive bronze door that form the cathedral's main entrance on Fifth Avenue are flanked by towers with spires rising about 330 feet
