"Lots of wholesale shops"

For an area called the Garment District this street, along with most others in the neighborhood, sure does sell a lot of things other than garments. There is a wholesale shop for just about anything you can imagine and a few things you couldn't on 30th's run through the Garment. Starting on the block at 6th Avenue, there are a few jewelry shops, a sock shop, a hat shop, a candy store, and even a crafting store. It's a weird run and I'm not quite sure who shops here but it's always busy around here so I guess people do.
Across Broadway, the tchotchke continues with a few perfume stores, a shop dedicated entirely to scarves and an entire store of Judaica. There is, however, a fantastic Indian spot on this block called Dimple that I highly recommend. The majority of both of these blocks are old, kind of decrepit buildings that I wouldn't really want to live in but the two on the end at 5th are quite lovely. Holland House used to be the most posh of posh hotels and the rug gallery across the street is a gorgeous building from around the same time that was meant for bachelor apartments. They're the only saving graces of the aesthetic of this street. There's not really much of a neighborhood vibe here because of all the wholesale shops and take out eateries. And, generally, I think the Garment District has sort of a grimy feel to it. Plus, it's way too close to midtown for my liking. It's not awful. There's just nothing "neighborhood" about it.
Pros
  • Wholesale shopping
