Took the subway to Chelsea Market, in the Meat packing district. I am a fan of the Food Network, and know that their station is there. Besides Food network, Oxygen, and quite a few productions have their offices there too. For Vancourites, Chelsea market is very much like our Granville Island, except that Granville Island is more jam packed, and of course, no TV stations in it.

Next stop was Forbes Magazine Galleries. Don't let the name fool you, it is not only a gallery of magazine but galleries of a variety of arts and cultural artifacts Malcolm Forbes collected over the years. In each section of the gallery, we saw his collection of toy boats, toy soldiers, hand written letters by first ladies, vintage monopoly games, oil paintings, pop art, etc. This is not a gallery a tourist would think of visiting but would be a interesting place to go if you have extra time. The bonus is that admission is FREE. Something pretty much unheard of in NY.

Went to see "Wicked" in the afternoon. This is a big and family oriented production about a story behind the witches of oz. My husband and I enjoyed the show and found it to be much better value than the one we went to the night before.
