About the Meatpacking District

Although the area was originally residential, markets have existed in the district since the 1840s.  People moved into tenements in the Meatpacking District in the 1820s to escape epidemics in what was then the main part of New York.  In 1900, 250 slaughterhouses and packing plants filled the district; by the 1930s, those houses produced the nation’s third-largest volume of dressed meats.  Five meatpacking companies still operate in the district.  Boutiques and bars are more common than rump roasts these days and the neighborhood continues to evolve almost daily. 

 

About Chelsea Market

Chelsea Market is a food hall, shopping mall, office building and television production facility located in the Chelsea neighborhood of the borough of Manhattan, in New York City.  It was built in the former National Biscuit Company (Nabisco) factory complex where the Oreo cookie was invented and produced.

 

About the High Line

Built on a historic, elevated freight line destined for demolition, the High Line has inspired millions worldwide as an example of how cities can reuse industrial spaces to create beautiful, hybrid spaces.

 

About Hudson Yards

Hudson Yards is the largest real estate development project in the history of the United States!  It features five acres of public space and gardens with the centerpiece being the Vessel which is an interactive landmark.  There is one million square feet of shops and restaurants as well as office buildings and residential buildings.  It has its own MTA subway stop off the 7 line.  The 7 was extended to end here (previously the last stop was Times Square).
