So you have just arrived in Manhattan, you just walked out of Penn into the busy, loud and crowded city. You want to go shopping, but you don’t know where to go. Well, if a beautiful, scenic walk to upscale shopping district sounds like your cup of tea, then Meatpacking is for you.
After doing some research, aka shopping all day long, for my upcoming fashion merchandising project, I kind of consider myself an expert on the area. So here I am to be your guide.
Once you’re out of Penn, head towards 8th avenue, then take a left onto 11th avenue, and another left onto West 30th street, and bam, 15 minutes later, you’re walking on the High Line.
Walk slowly, enjoy the view, and take some pictures to post on your Instagram.
Grab an ice-cold Coke beforehand and don’t forget your shades, because when the weather is nice, a walk on the High Line is nearly transcendent.
Once you arrive and you descend the stairs, you’ll come across Intermix, a store that sells a wide array of brands, including Rag & Bone, Helmut Lang, Iro Amiya, Jbrand, Frame, and many more.
From there, you can continue North to a shopping center that has Isis, Vince, Tory Burch, Ted Baker, and Zadig & Voltaire. Further North is AllSaints. From AllSaints, if you head Southeast, you will come across Rebecca Taylor, Theory, Helmut Lang, and Christian Louboutin. Heading West will lead you to Hugo Boss, The Kooples (not yet open), Lululemon, La Perla, Joie, Alice & Olivia, Scoop NYC, and the iconic Diane von Furstenberg store. There is also an Apple store nearby for all you tech-savvy shoppers.
After you are done shopping, and you are absolutely famished, head over to Le Pain Quotidien for a bite to eat, and take a seat at one of the outdoor tables, sit in the sun, and reminisce about all of the lovely things you bought and what an amazing day you had, courtesy of my little guide. You’re welcome.
Have you ever been to Meatpacking? Do you hope to go soon? What are your favorite activities there?
PS, I’ll share my project with you guys once it’s done!
