Unfortunately, a reader commented last week that he went looking for the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market and didn't find anything:
I tried to go to the Hell's Kitchen Flea Market last weekend (both Saturday and Sunday) but was totally unable to find it. I walked 39th street from 8th Ave to 11th ave but saw nothing that even began to resemble a flea market. Any ideas what was up? John Doe
THE John Doe! We apologize, and it seems some tectonic shifts are happening in the Flea Market world.
While we think Hell's Kitchen is still on, we hear that Chelsea has closed. We have found NO news on the web that it closed, but everyone we have spoken to says it's KAPUT. What happened? Anyone got the scoop? MGR
