Despite its name, the Meatpacking District is not exclusively home to butchers and meat packers.
The Meatpacking District has undergone many changes throughout the past few decades. While the area was largely undesirable throughout the 1980s, the Meatpacking District began transforming in the late 1990s, eventually culminating in the neighborhood's status today as one of the trendiest in Manhattan. It is a significant hub for the fashion industry, featuring several top-name boutiques.
