Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our trip to NYC simply wouldn't be complete without a walk through the garnet district. We picked a Sunday morning, before any of the shops were open, to simply look around. Lots of beautiful things to see and an amazing Museum at the FIT.
For anyone who loves textile art, check it out.

We explored a lot of New York on foot and the walk from 42nd Street through the Garment District was reasonably interesting, even if we were not particularly experienced in garment design or manufacture.

There has clearly been a little bit of gentrification going on but there is still a little bit of edginess around. A few homeless people and little groups of beggars/unemployed individuals populated the area, although that happens in most capital cities these days.

There is a lot of development at Hudson Yards with apartment buildings, scultures and a smart shopping centre and it will be interesting to see how far this goes in uplifting the area to the east of this.

Though the area is now in a decline of its name, I think that Hudson Yards might help reinvigorate the area. My subject speaks of Malcolm Gladwell. In Outliers, the combination of many factors resulted in this area of NYC and the world becoming a fashion HUB. Many Jewish immigrants who were not allowed to own land in Europe came to the city with textile skills. This timing could not have been better because the city was growing as a fashion hub and these talented immigrants were able to provide a kickstart. This combination of the NYC's fashion boom and the right people at the right allowed helped stimulate the massive and dominant American fashion industry.

The garment district is amazing if you are a fashion designer! There are so many stores, big and small, that are packed with tons and tons of fabrics for you to choose from. There is no way you will leave without finding what you are looking for. Mood, Prime Fabrics, and B&J Fabrics are some of my favorites. Some of fabrics are pricey, but definitely worth the quality!

It’s ok but you would probably require an interest in the area. Otherwise you could pass through without stopping . Not for me.

If you enjoy looking at and/or working with textiles, peruse the fabric shops in the Garment District of New York City. You will see fabric, notions, trim, and beads from all over the world. And, many of these stores are crammed full with inventory that you don’t get to see everyday. The colors, textures, and bling are delightful. Some of these retail spaces, from the outside, look like a hole-in-the-wall. Once inside, the inventory is bright and sparkly. Prepare yourself for sticker shock. These prices are rather expensive. Additionally, observe that shopping alongside of you are some of the college kids who attend the nearby, Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT). It’s always fun to people-watch and observe their personal sense of style.

the historical roots of this quintessential NYC neighborhood lend color to the side streets as it transforms into a modern hub for business and a convenient, centralized starting point for visitors. whether you are coming to midtown from out of the country, the tri-state area, or another part of the city, the transportation options can't be beaten. a lot of great dining options and rooftop bars to be discovered as well.
