Redeveloped into mixture of upscale shops & restaurants
Mar 2021
NYC's former Meatpacking District has been largely redeveloped into a mixture of upscale shops & restaurants. Most of them are still open, but you'll now see a lot of empty storefronts. There's enough of the remaining meat distributors to make this an eclectic neighborhood.

The meatworks that came to art
Dec 2020
New York constantly regenerates itself. This area once had hundreds of meat packing works, now its a haven for artists. The transition is amazing. It's also known for its high-end fashion. The Whitney, which has the world's best collection of American art, is nearby. You can access the area by the High Line, which is an old rail line. It is now an elevated linear park,

NYC's most fashionable neighbourhood
Mar 2020
In NYC, nothing stands still. Up until the 1970s, the main industry in the Meatpacking District was slaughtering animals . Now its a mega trendy neighbourhood, full of top-end boutiques and fancy bars. The Whitney American art museum is a notable addition to the area. A fun way to get to the Meatpacking District is to take the High Line linear park, an old elevated railway line. The Meatpacking District is in the far west of Manhattan. It runs from the Hudson River east to Hudson Street, and West 14th St south to Gansevoort Street.

Over-gentrified historical district
Jan 2020
Once a busy industrial area, then a Manhattan nightlife staple, the Meatpacking district has unfortunately been thoroughly gentrified.

There are still a few overpriced bars in the area, mostly associated with hotels. I would actually highly recommend the standard bar mostly for its view over the city and river but if you’re looking for nightlife, go elsewhere, even to nearby Chelsea, or better yet Brooklyn.

There is one small block on the edge of the district with the remaining couple of meat distribution companies, don’t expect a working suburb.

Worth a visit to look at the old warehouses or perhaps do some designer shopping if you’re into that.

Nice Neighborhood

This is a nice neighborhood in New York City, and I enjoyed walking its streets and experiencing it firsthand.

Most of the personality of the area has been bulldozed
Dec 2019
Well I know that this is a great area for a night out but I do think that all the personality that was here has been erased. The High Line is definitely worth a visit but, whilst the High Line is fun, the view is a bit dull. Try East Village and West Village if you want more vintage. This is bland designer.

Some people seem to not get enough of this area and I wonder why. parts of the district is renovated but I still see no beauty nor charm with this part of Manhattan.

A Transformation
Sep 2019
This part of town was truly dangerous, about 40 years ago. Now the big danger is for the possibility that a fashionista might turn an ankle when she falls off her super-high heels. Lots of luxury brands and expensive restaurants. A recycled area.

Metropolitan Transformation
Oct 2019 • Business
Saturday October 12, 2019...I was walking through the west village NYC on my way to a New York City Wine & Food Festival assignment. I walked through the Meat Packing District.

I love New York and here’s one area that has a wealth of history

This area has a deep history, that goes back a long way, Back then it was a Meat Distribution Mecca and at night a very seedy strip so to speak.

Today it’s undergone a renaissance and renovation that has many boutiques, shops and restaurants. If you’re planning on a trip to New York, this is truly a must have stop for a great day out.

This is one of my Favorites in New York...the Ambiance and Nostalgic juxtaposition is amazing.

Thanks again Tripsters.
