Perhaps one of the most transformed sections of Manhattan in recent years, the Meatpacking has become the home of some of the world’s most famous boutiques – including Alexander McQueen, Stella McCartney, and Diane von Furstenberg. Deemed New York’s most fashionable neighborhood by New York magazine in 2004, the District is also host to a variety of night clubs, restaurants, and one of the city’s top Apple Stores.
The physical boundaries of the neighborhood are rough, but generally considered to run from the Hudson River east to Hudson Street and then West 14th Street south to Gansevoort Street. It won’t be hard to know when you’re in the area, however, as many of the old meatpacking facilities have been remade into more accessible and modern uses, such as fashion boutiques.
The old-timey look is partially held in place by buildings like the Herring Safe & Lock Company building that dates to 1849. The Standard Hotel is also a throwback to old-school New York architecture that sees modern usage in this revitalized area. This is not the area of New York high-rises and skyscrapers, but many New Yorkers find the old-world charm to be something they can’t live without.
