Photo by myself at West Side Market, on the Upper West Side.
I'm perhaps one of the only people who will go bananas over cold cuts. This huge assortment of meats at West Side Market was so brilliantly lit, I could not resist taking a photo.
New Yorkers know how to eat. Surprisingly, a good number of us know how to cook too, and our foodstuffs reflects that fact. The selection of prepared foods and ingredients at West Side Market is incredible. Every nook and cranny is jam-packed with goodies.
West Side Market has several locations in Manhattan, as well as a website where you can order online. True to name, each store is located on the west side. The photo above was taken at the 110th Street and Broadway store, near Columbia University. Other locations include 77th and Broadway, and 7th Avenue and 14th Street, in Chelsea.
There's also a location in New Jersey, which is even further west, across the Hudson River.
