Meatpacking District, New York City
(4.4/5 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.

  • The tourist-less busy, calm, and hence the sympathetic part of New York City, offering a slightly different architecture and culture. Area characterized by a rather older and smaller buildings, than the rest of Manhattan, with lots of restaurants and shops.

  • Disappointed that Company felt the need to continue to charge me, despite having to cancel the day before due to a foot injury. 
  • Very interesting this ride and its market, the park with its high ride that covers many blocks. Another look at non-traditional neighborhoods of NY
