Is there a public access WiFi network at Chelsea Market?
Yes, it's named "ChelseaMarketPublicWiFi" and it's free. Not "Free Public WiFi" (which is actually PC malware and so something you'd want to avoid) or anything else.
I am a photographer/buyer. Who do I contact about art in the Market?
We currently do not accept unsolicited photo submissions/please see information regarding purchase of the current artists' work, including contact info, onsite and on the walls of the market under each existing piece.
Aren't 3G, EDGE and WiFi all the same thing?
No, they aren't. 3G and EDGE transmit on totally different frequencies from WiFi and most phone company transmitters don't have sufficient signal strength to penetrate the Chelsea Market building. Only one company does but that's because they have booster transmitters inside the building itself. That's why the WiFi transmitters were installed and made freely available for public use.
How do I get access to the free, public access WiFi network named "ChelseaMarketPublicWiFi"?
Are there positions available in the market?
Please contact individual stores directly. Retail and Restaurants page.
How come it doesn't seem to be working for me or I get a terribly slow data rate even when I'm standing under one of the transmitters?
Are you using an iPhone or other PDA with a phone built-in (i.e., not an iPod Touch)? Are you also receiving a weak signal from the phone company's 3G or EDGE network? Do you even have WiFi switched on? Try switching off 3G and ensuring that WiFi is switched on and try connecting again. Sometimes, devices like iPhones and other PDAs with built-in phones which have access to multiple data signal sources available will default to the last used source regardless of how weak it is (unless the weak signal is switched off or completely unavailable) and ignore a much more powerful signal that's available.
