I would call Fashion Ave in NYC the fashion place of the world. It is here that everything that deals with or is associated with fashion can be found. Just take a walk down the Avenue and you will see...

"Summer fun street"

- JenMac
West 40th starts off much more pleasingly than most other streets in this neighborhood -- and, it's actually it pretty lovely start for any neighborhood in the city. The block at 5th Avenue holds one...

"The Minnesota Strip in New York City????"

- markahorn

"Busy but worth it. "

- andiefrancese
West 33rd St is one of the busiest roads in Manhattan, with a great deal of foot traffic and major venues located on it, but it is worth it. The Manhattan Mall is located on the block, not far from Ma...

"Convenient, But Loud and Dirty"

- Anemone10
This street is great if you need to take a train somewhere, or if you need to go to the post office. West 31st street is the southern border of Penn Station, and so has very easy access to the LIRR, N...

"Shop Till You Drop"

- hhusted
If you are into shopping, you will love Herald Square. At the corner of 34th St is Daffy's. It is incredible the number of department stores and little shops along the way. If you really want to spend...

"Rather drab and uneventful"

- JenMac
35th starts off its run through the Garment District at 5th with a real mish mosh of businesses and the street remains like that right up until it goes into Hell's Kitchen at 8th Avenue. The block at...

"Lots of green spaces for an Avenue"

- JenMac
There's quite a lot of green space on 6th Avenue which is rare for an Avenue and even rarer for the Garment District. That adds a massive bonus to the street appeal but it's still hard to justify liv...

West 28 St

"Beautiful architecture for a commercial run"

- JenMac
This stretch of 28th only runs from 6th to 5th but has quite the rich history and some great old buildings. The block from 6th to Broadway used to be known as Tin Pan Alley. It's where all the new m...

"Gorgeous buildings ruined by weird shops"

- JenMac
This run of 29th, from 5th to 6th, looks now about how seedy it used to be back when this was the Tenderloin. It used to be a big neighborhood in the gambling, dance hall and prostitute arena in the...

"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...

"Only for garment people"

West 39th used to be all mansions in the Garment District. But, those days, sadly, are over. Now, it's a really commercial street with some apartment buildings in the mix and about zero in the neigh...

"Little commercial block"

West 26th only runs for one block through the Garment District neighborhood. And, this particular block is nothing of what you expect of the Garment District in general. The neighborhood is really d...

"A little shopping if you're into these kinds of stores"

- JenMac
The one block run of 27th through the Garment District has little to do with garments, but it is still very commercial. In fact, I don't think you can live on this block at all. As far as I know, it...
