I typically don’t hang out in the Meatpacking District since it consists mostly of trendy nightclubs (not my scene) and expensive, upscale designer boutiques (not my scene either, though I wish it were). However, a few months back I was wandering the area while taking a photo walk with Joanne Pio, and we stumbled across the Gansevoort Market. It’s an open-air marketplace with a gorgeous flower stall and tons of great food joints, in a casual, indoor-meets-outdoor atmosphere. I never even knew it existed! This place is definitely worth a visit if you’re in the area, perhaps visiting the High Line. Take a peek…
