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.
