The closest thing to meatpacking in this no-longer-industrial neighborhood are the throngs of beautiful people packed into its glamorous, trendy lounges and meat-market nightclubs. The area’s factories and plants have long since been transformed into designer boutiques, renowned restaurants, and luxury residences.
Right on the Hudson River and smack between the quieter charms of Chelsea and the West Village, the Meatpacking District is perfect for hip residents who want their neighborhood to be as stylish as they are. By day, tourists flock to the cobblestone streets for high-end shopping, access to the High Line, and exclusive hotels. Locals get to enjoy all those amusements and gorgeous views of the water and city from their sleek residences.
For those who want a high-octane, high-fashion, nightlife-driven quintessential Manhattan lifestyle, it doesn’t get any better than the Meatpacking District.
