Meatpacking District

The Meatpacking District, also known as the Gansevoort Market District, is the rising star of cutting-edge New York style yet also celebrates its commercial past as the city's newest landmark Historic District, designated in 2003. For many decades, the area served as a center of New York City's meatpacking industry, but in recent years it has been completely transformed as a style-setting neighborhood replete with prestigious clothing boutiques and design stores, clubs and highly acclaimed restaurants known for their global cuisine. West 14th Street serves as the main shopping area, while the block-wide Chelsea Market, originally the factory headquarters of the Nabisco bakery, houses New York's largest collection of gourmet food purveyors. Meatpacking District real estate offers access to neighborhood galleries featuring the works of both famed luminaries and lesser-known figures of the art world. Extending from West 15th Street south to Gansevoort Street between Hudson Street and the Hudson River, the Meatpacking District is one of the communities along the old tracks of the High Line elevated railroad, built in the early 1930s to allow trains to run from the riverfront docks directly into the factories and warehouses. This 22-block open space has recently been converted to a grand, above-ground public promenade, creating a tranquil green oasis in the manner of the Promenade Plante in Paris.
