Place records lost in the redesign

The NYC places include a number of venues inside Chelsea Market, a former biscuit factory that now comprises a ground floor full of unrelated eateries (and office space upstairs that I think includes the Food Network offices).

There were enough food places in there that at some point I entered a separate record for Chelsea Market ( and linked to it from most of the market's Chow records in what is now the Good to Know field. Here are some of them:

Since the redesign, mysteriously, the Chelsea Market URL (#8137) redirects to the page for Chelsea Wine Vault (, a wine store inside the market. So the venue records above now contain bad links, and the wine store's record now contains a link to itself.

Something similar appears to have happened to a pre-redesign record for the Essex Street Market (, another umbrella venue that houses a number of food vendors. That URL too now redirects to the wrong place, a record for Essex Farm (, a vendor inside the market. And all records that linked to the Essex St. Market page now link incorrectly to Essex Farm.

Please restore the Chelsea Market and Essex Street Market pages. If that can't be done, please let us know why, and repair or remove the bad links.

I sent a note about this on 10/4 to the redesign e-mail address but never heard back, so it must've fallen between the cracks. That's why I'm posting here.
