For over a century, this area has been considered the center of America’s fashion industry and is the highest-concentrated area of fashion business and design talent in the country.
Expect to pay a fair amount for an apartment in the Garment District. However, since you can save by not having a vehicle and by walking/using transit you may find it a worthwhile trade. Everything you need is just a short walk away; including great restaurants, shopping, and entertainment.
There is so much to see and do in this area, without even leaving the one-square-mile district. Just on the edge of the district is Bryant Park. This popular year-round attraction offer lush green lawns, flower beds, a promenade, and even chess and backgammon tables. Families flock to Bryant Park on warm days to enjoy ping pong and the carousel, while, in the winter, the ice rink attracts people of all ages. Within the park you’ll also find the New York Public Library for internet access and book borrowing.
Just outside of the Garment District you’ll find other major New York City attractions, including Times Square, Grand Central Station, and Rockefeller Center. Dog owners will love Astro’s Dog run – just a few blocks away on 10th Avenue.
The Garment District is a shopper’s paradise, particularly for those who love fashion. Besides major retailers, you’ll find interesting and unique specialty shops (like Spandex World, for example). While perusing the shops, you’ll also find unique restaurants – some that can only be discovered by word of mouth or via narrow alleyways. There’s no shortage of stores and activities in this small area, that’s for sure!
