Geocache Description:

The cache is big enough to hold the log. BYOP.

This cache is not that hard to find but the stealth that is needed to get the cache is a little tougher. Figuring out how to get this cache without standing out like a wolf among a flock of sheep is part of the challenge and fun.

Facing uptown, across the street on the left side from this cache is a hidden market. This market is an enclosed, urban food court and shopping mall in New York City. It was built within a former cookie factory complex where a certain famous chocolate cookie with cream filling that people like to twist apart before dunking in milk was invented and produced.

Retail facilities were introduced into the building by connecting the original back lots of individual buildings to a central, ground-level concourse with entries at 9th and 10th Avenues (completed in April 1997).Above this market, passing through the building on the 10th Avenue side is the High Line.

The building for the market also houses the studios for a certain famous food network channel on cable TV and tours are available to the public at various times.

The market have a wonderful display of interesting architectural design inside the market. The market is very popular with the people in the area and a popular place for tourists and locals to take photos.

On the other side of the street from the market, is the building where a very famous big search company is headquartered in NYC. Need a hint? It sounds like OOGLE.

If you are wondering why I'm not naming the companies and places directly, Geocaching don't allow any possible company endorsement in the caches placed in case of abuse which I totally understand.
