So I stayed at a hotel right in the heart of the Garment District. I was there to source for fabrics and accessories for my store and it was such a good and central location. My hotel was on West 35th street and a convenient walk to most of the stores I needed to visit. Times Square was also just... More

In this fashion district of NYC with terrific sculptures evocative of its history and the people who made their livelihoods sewing, here's the racks of clothes moving alongside people jostling for space on the sidewalk. It's still got the beat of fashion, albeit the rag makers are now more chic than the district's origins, but change is what keeps NYC... More

There is a tour called Garment District Special Access Tour and its about $60 a person. I booked this tour thinking it would be a fabric tour with historical facts about the garment district, but its not. Its a tour that takes you to designer boutiques and they pressure you to buy things. Just a heads up. The Garment District... More

We went at 10:30 on Saturday morning and many shops were unfortunately closed for the weekend, but we were still able to find plenty of fabric at several stores. Know what you want before you go, because the selection may be mind-boggling!

This is a perfect district to explore NYC. The Empire State Building, Broadway, Times Square are all within walking disances! There are several hotels, shops, restaurants as well. It was a good idea to have our accommodation in here! :-)

I am visiting from Colombia. So, my family and I came for vacation to New York City. We had to stop by and look around in some of the stores in the beautiful garment district. One store stood out to us today, which is why I am writing this review on here. Ebad Fabrics was the first and best store... More

By 1931 the Garment district, located in the 30s between Fifth & 8th Avenues, was the largest in the world concentration of apparel manufacturers. As the demands of the fashion industry increased, the area gradually developed high-end showrooms and nowadays, it's mostly that: direct outlets and showrooms. Most manufacturing (what's left of it in Manhattan) has moved to downtown. In... More

We came to New York with this on the list and I must say that I am enlightened to what the Garment district offers. It was close to our hotel and although we thought that we would shop on 34th where Macys is located, the Garment district was a true rival. My teenagers loved all of the fabric shops and... More

We had a great time walking the garment and fashion district. We wished we had more time to shop here. If you go, set a few hours or even the whole day and even thou almost everyone we visited take credit cards I feel you can negotiate a bit more with cash. No fitting rooms so I will suggest to...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
