Garment District Neighborhood Guide
Also known as the Fashion District, due to its dense concentration of fashion-related stores and offices, the Garment District is home to many world-famous fashion labels and everything from design to production to selling is done there. There is no city in the world with this type of concentration of fashion businesses. In addition, famous businesses like Microsoft, Ernst & Young, eBay and The New York Times have offices here, and other retailers outside the fashion industry have been taking the neighborhood by storm. Though the neighborhood is largely commercial, recent years have seen more residential housing development and retailers outside the fashion industry taking the neighborhood by storm.
Architecture and landmarks
Architecture in the Garment District is a mix of industrial buildings, pre-war residential buildings, and new builds. Notable landmarks include the Fashion Walk of Fame, the only landmark in the world dedicated exclusively to American fashion, a statue of Ralph Kramden outside the Port Authority Bus Terminal, a sculpture of a needle threading a button, and the historic Greenwich Savings Bank Building.
Transportation is not a problem in the Garment District: to the south, there's the Penn Station, where residents can hop on NJ Transit, the Long Island Rail Road, and Amtrak. It's also within walking distance of Grand Central Terminal and PATH at 23rd Street. Several subway lines run through the neighborhood - the blue, red, yellow and orange lines, and the Port Authority Bus Terminal is just steps north of the Garment District.
There are no public or private schools within the Garment District but there are several highly-rated options nearby. The Clinton School for Writers and Artists serves 6th through 8th grades, PS 11 William Harris offers classes for pre-kindergarten through 5th grade, and Manhattan Village Academy is one of the highest rated 9-12 schools in the city.
The closest medical facility, Midtown's Emergency Room, is a few blocks west of the Garment District. However, the neighborhood's close proximity to a plethora of public transportation options makes it relatively simple to get to a doctor's appointment in a different neighborhood.
The crime rate in the Manhattan South Precinct, which the Garment District is part of, was 136.02 per 1,000 residents in 2015. The Midtown area has the highest crime rate in NYC.
Things to do
Residents find no shortage of unique activities to take part in, from aerial yoga to sample sales and New York City's first patch of astroturf. Visit the pedestrian plaza between 39th Street and 40th Street to have a glass of lemonade and enjoy an art exhibit on a two-block patch of fake grass.
For those with more expensive tastes - and a lot more time - Delmonico's Kitchen has been a staple of the Garment District for decades. This Italian eatery is old school New York - just like the neighborhood it's in. Libations can be enjoyed on a number of rooftop bars around the Garment District and there are more than a dozen independent coffee shops offering uniquely curated coffee concoctions. Other options for going out include the Hammerstein Ballroom, an elegant and well-known event venue that regularly accommodates large parties, galas, award shows and concerts.
Shopping options are seemingly endless and a person could spend an entire day and still not see every store. Favorites vary from person to person, but there are a few legends that aren't to be missed. Paron West and Paron Annex are located right next to each other and offer a mind-boggling array of fabrics at rock-bottom prices. Mood is a three-story store with designer fabrics and is famously known as the shopping home for the TV show "Project Runway." M&J Trimming is the best-known option for embellishments and trim to finish off fashion designs.
