Free Largely Flightless Birds Land in Chelsea, as Thanksgiving Tradition with Legs Takes Wing

Chelsea Market—the NYC tourist and foodie destination once known for cranking out chalky candy Necco Wafers—may have changed hands, but it still has a firm grip on the annual tradition of providing Chelsea residents with a Thanksgiving meal’s main attraction. Some 1,300 turkeys were handed out last week, with the gobblers going to Fulton and Elliott-Chelsea Houses, Hudson Guild, and Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen. Giving away the tryptophan-containing answer to the question, “White, or dark meat?” is a continuation of the historical support from Chelsea Market ownership (previously Jamestown, now Google). The below photos were taken as the flight-challenged guests of honor touched down just long enough to be scooped up.
