Basically, a scruffy run down neighbourhood, with a lot of highly overpriced arts/craft shops and designer outlets, which you would also find on 5th Avenue in far more pleasant surroundings! Don't bother going there!

A fascinating tour I found just by googling "Garment Districy NYC" cost us $60 and a morning. We met outside a retail/wholesale trimming and notions establishment. I foolishly didn't purchase anything (what a great selection!) thinking we would hit this one during out tour. Don't miss our--arrive early and select what you like. The tour encompassed 6 different designer studios... More

A really interesting neighbourhood that can be visited easily from the main attractions in Manhattan and is a great place to grab some lunch.

I don't think that I would make a special trip to see the garment district, but I happened to stay close by and really enjoyed walking through. I especially find all those little shops that cater to costumers really fun to look in. Beads and baubles galore. Millinery shops that look like they have been doing business for 100 years.... More

The Garment District is a very interesting neighbourhood in New York City. It is in Manhattan and really consists of many old buildings that still cater to the needs of the sewing industry - wholesale and retail of everything related to the garment industry - fabrics, machines, accessories, buttons, zips, etc...If you are not interested in the sewing business, you...

I love the garment district and each time I visit new York it's my first stop. Got lots of great fabrics, buttons, zippers and threads as such great value. As a dressmaker it's sewing heaven.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
