Curiosities City Secrets Garment District Bettmann Corbis Workday

See what our friends from Untapped New York have to say about the 8 Disappearing Districts and Neighborhoods of NYC!

Our friends from Untapped New York posted a great article about the disappearing districts and neighborhoods in NYC!  Since we love to learn about the city’s history, we want to share the great work they’ve done!

Plus, maybe if we write about them here too, we are able to keep their story and their tradition alive!

Read the full post at Untapped New York’s website and breathtaking nostalgic pictures!!!


1) Music Row was located on 48th Street between 6th & 7th Avenue. If you were a musician in New York City, this area was the place to go. Whether it was rock & roll, R&B, punk, classical, jazz or whatever, this once thriving block was a one stop shopping for any instrument, sheet music and instrument repair.

2) The Meatpacking District, located west of 9th Avenue and south of 14th Street, once housed 250 slaughterhouses and packing plants. By 1930 it produced the third largest volume of dressed meats in the country.

3) Bookseller’s or Book Row was an area of used book stores located on 4th Avenue from 8th Street to 14th Street that had 48 bookstores. This mecca for second hand books started in the 1890’s and lasted until the late 1960’s.

4) The Flower District is located on 28th Street between 6th & 7th Avenue. This area became a magnet for flower and plant businesses likely due to its proximity to Midtown, Madison Square Garden and Macy’s, all a driving force behind recent low cost hotel development.

…and still:

5) The Kitchen Restaurant Supply District is located on the Bowery between Houston and Canal. The Bowery is the oldest thoroughfare in Manhattan and was once one of New York’s most elegant streets.

6) Shoe Row was an area of 8th Street between 5th and 6th Avenues that housed many mom and pop shoe stores. This was a bonafide footwear destination with over two dozen shoe stores mostly catering to the younger clientele that began to take off in the 1980’s.

7) The Garment District occupies one square mile between 35th & 40th Street west of 5th Avenue. New York is known as one of the world’s fashion capitals, so it makes sense that it has a vibrant Garment Center.

8) The Fulton Fish Market was one of the largest wholesale fish markets on the east coast. Started in 1822, at South Street, fish were delivered by boat right to the market from the East River.


It kills us to know that so much of New York City’s historical spots and facts are dying. We are part of the group of people that have as one of the goals, to keep it all alive!

The stories are endless, the details are breathtaking, the facts are infinite! Let’s spread to word to keep it alive!

If you area also a big fan of keep these stories alive, and you want to have a private tours and experiences of any Borough to learn more. Contact our experts so they can organize it for you! We also work with Corporate requests!
