Meatpacking District, New York City

Hip bars, restaurants, and boutique clothing shops dominate this reinvigorated historic neighborhood known as Meatpacking District. Officially called Gansevoort Market, the district formerly housed most of the city's meat distribution companies, but regrowth has made it one of the trendiest areas in the Big Apple. During the day visit exclusive boutique clothing stores, and at night visit the district's restaurants and clubs, keeping an eye out for celebrities. In this area you'll find the Ground Zero Museum Workshop, which exists to aid in the understanding of what happened during the terror attacks on September 11, 2001. The district is also home to the High Line, a park built on a raised railway line, which sits 11 m (35 ft) above the street.

  • I never knew this neighborhood shaken and disrespectful of other times I've been in New Yok today is the point of templates designers and designers of the crowd tuned into news vying for a place by the rooftops. restaurants hipsters, griffes, estudios, markets such as Chelsea Market has to be visited. For lovers of Apple there is even greater than that of 5th Avenue.

  • The area has lots of clubs and high end shops now but just doesn't have much that I really care to do. It's nice to walk or ride thru but not a place I care to hang out.  more »
  • Great region with many great restaurants and bars, workshops, shops taken off and a lot to do.

Where to stay in New York City

The first step to finding accommodations in New York City is finding the right neighborhood. Manhattan, where most visitors end up, offers some of the most expensive rooms in the world, though there are lower-budget options, such as hostels with shared restrooms. Reduce your costs by basing yourself in one of the outer boroughs, but beware of low-end motels where you may end up sharing the premises with hourly customers. Alternatively, stay along the New Jersey shore, offering all the major chain hotels at considerably lower prices than their Manhattan equivalents.
