Meatpacking District

Meatpacking District is unarguably one of the most distinctive spaces New York has to offer. The confined, little neighborhood to the west of 9th Avenue x 14th Street might have witnessed one of the most peculiar forms of transformation in history from one industrialization phase to the next: meatpacking to luxury retailing. Indeed, a short look around will leave you wondering what sort of twisted, subliminal correlation might actually exist between the art of butchering cattle and marketing top-notch designer bags.

The Standard Hotel - otherwise known as the coolest hotel in town - where rooms facing the Hudson don't have any curtains.
