"High Traffic and Windy!"
The stretch of 10th ave that I am commenting on is thoe no directly behind Chelsea Markets and the Meat Market District. The first thing to point out is that the famous Morimotto’s restaurant is located behind Chelsea Markets and offers a delight to the palate of the sushi lover. Beyond that, 10th avenue is mostly a utility-based street with gas stations and auto repair shops lining its sidewalks. This is not a street that I would recommend living on because of the high traffic and its proximity to the West Side highway. It tends to be noisy here, and also as I’ve noticed recently, quite windy as well. Furthermore, there are no subway lines that go that far west, with the closest being the A C E line running on 8th ave.
