More Ideas: The Garment District

New York City is known for many things. It's a hub of culture and entertainment, absolutely filled with museums, galleries, comedy clubs, sports bars, live entertainment venues, theaters, and more. It's also one of the most touristic cities on the planet, renowned for its high profile landmarks like the Statue of Liberty and the Empire State Building. It's a place for fine dining and urban exploration of all kinds, and it's also, without a doubt, one of the best places to go shopping anywhere in the world.

Right alongside the likes of London, Paris, and Milan, New York City is one of the key fashion capitals, with many big brands, designers, and labels operating in the Big Apple. Major fashion shows are held there each and every year and there are so many stores and boutiques for shopping enthusiasts to enjoy, especially in the Garment District, the best place to go shopping in New York City.

Visiting The Garment District NYC

The Garment District, also sometimes referred to as the Fashion District or the Garment Center, is a neighborhood situated in Manhattan, running from Fifth Ave and Ninth Ave over to 34th and 42nd St. It's the heart of fashion in NYC and arguably the biggest fashion center in the entire world.

Huge fashion labels and major designers including Calvin Klein, Carolina Herrera, and Oscar de la Renta have showrooms and production facilities in the Garment District, and many other international designers and labels have stores there too. There's even a Fashion Walk of Fame, and here’s all you need to know about visiting the Garment District in NYC.

- How To Get To Garment District - If you're new to New York, you don't need to worry. Getting to the Garment District is a lot easier than you might think. It's situated right in the heart of Midtown Manhattan, with easy access to all transportation networks around the city and beyond. No less than 16 different subway lines connect to the Garment District, with dozens of buses stopping in the area too. Those traveling from further away can make use of the Long Island Rail Road, NJ Transit, and Metro North to reach the Garment District too.

- The Fashion Walk of Fame - One of the top things to do in the Garment District, especially for tourists and those who are visiting for the first time, is to take a walk along the Fashion Walk of Fame. Just like the Hollywood Walk of Fame which features stars for celebrities, the Fashion Walk of Fame in NYC is dedicated to icons of the fashion industry, with plaques embedded right into the sidewalk, adorned with the names of famous creators. From 41st St to 40th St, for example, you can find the plaques of Marc Jacobs and Betsey Johnson. The likes of Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren can be spotted on 40th and 39th, and there are plenty more to discover along the walk as well.

- Walking Tours - One of the best ways to see and enjoy all the Garment District has to offer is to take a walking tour. There are free Garment District walking tours held on a regular basis through Mike's NYC Tours. The tour lasts for up to two hours and will take you all around the district, with your friendly guide, Mike Kaback, taking you around, teaching you about the history of the fashion industry in NYC, pointing out some of the hidden treasures of the area, and telling you stories from his own past in the area. There are dedicated shopping tours and historical tours to choose from too, as well as online resources like Destination Midtown to help you plan your own self-guided walking tour of the Garment District.

- Shopping - There are simply hundreds of fashion stores, brands, and businesses to be found around the Garment District, and it's easily one of the top spots to go shopping in NYC. You can find absolutely everything here, from casual attire and sportswear to elegant dresses an eveningwear for any occasion. From the delicate lingerie of Victoria's Secret to the 11 floors of shopping heaven in Macy's Herald Square and even superhero stories over at Midtown Comics, there’s something for everyone here. New arrivals will be simply overwhelmed by the sheer quantity of stores all around them, and it can be worth signing up for a shopping tour to get the best experience.

- Food and Drink - The Garment District is best known for its fashion stores and showrooms, but it's one of NYC's best dining spots too. You can find everything here, from the fine Italian dining of Arno Ristorante (141 W 38th St) and Casa Nonna (310 W 38th St) to classic American fare of Parker & Quinn (64 W 39th St) and the Korean BBQ delights of Gogi 37 (252 W 37th St. Tapas, Basque, Mediterranean, Cuban, Asian, and many other restaurants can be found around the area too. There are also dozens of great bars in the Garment District like Stitch Bar & Lounge (247 W 37th St) and McGettigan's NYC (70 W 36th St), plus lots of cozy cafes for light bites and drinks like Café Grumpy (200 W 39th St) and Piccolo Café (274 W 40th St).

More Ideas: Larkin Square

All around America, we’re seeing industrial, disused, and overlooked areas being given new purposes. This process is turning places like old, abandoned warehouses into thriving hubs of culture and entertainment, and one of the very best examples of this can be seen in Larkinville, a small area of Buffalo in New York.

Situated near Downtown Buffalo, Larkinville was once an industrial area, dominated by the large complex of warehouses and facilities of the Larkin Soap Company. The area has history dating all the way back to the 1820s, but in the 1950s, the Larkin Company went out of business and the area was largely ignored for many years.

In recent times, however, this area has been entirely renovated and revitalized, home to one of Buffalo's best event venues, meeting places, and public gathering areas: Larkin Square. Hosting all kinds of events and concerts throughout the year, Larkin Square has swiftly become one of New York State's leading hangout spots.

- Getting There - If you prefer to rely on public transport to get to Larkin Square, you can take the Metro Rail over to the Church St Station and then catch the number 15 NFTA bus to Larkin Square.

- Contact - If you'd like to get in touch with the Larkin Square team with queries about your visit or another related matter, you can call 716 362 2665 or fill out an online contact form. You can also stay up to date with all Larkin Square news by following the square’s social media accounts.
