Meatpacking District, New York City

(4.5/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
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. Meatpacking District is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, New York City Edition.

  • Walk through the region is a program that we love to do in NY. We walk through the High Line and visit the Chelsea Market.

  • A tour of the Upper West Side in July: at Lincoln Center, an outdoor jazz festival. From dusk on, listening to music and dancing in the streets. An experience not to be missed!
