Want to Explore the Garment District?
If you want to explore the garment district ...
There are many ways to do so!
I receive a good number of questions and requests from people who want to tour The Garment District, and have a wide variety of interests/needs/goals. Believe me, my tours are lots of fun for people who sew, design and create. The area is navigable on your own, of course, too... but some places you will not find without guidance, and there are so many stores that it is REALLY hard to make your journey time-effective without running out of energy! I do occasionally offer my own carefully curated tours, aimed at really finding what's "special" and unusual for people who are passionately creative and education and quality oriented. The social aspect is a big bonus, too, and may of us have made great connections and gotten great ideas this way!
This is New York City, though, and I'm sure you can imagine that there are other great ways to experience the magic and history of the garment district.
You will find other touring options by clicking http://garmentdistrictnyc.com/plan-your-visit/walking-tours/. Some of them are free, and some are low-cost! I don't have the personal experience with these tours to offer an endorsement or guarantee, but want to make you aware that they exist!
If you would like to attend one of my tours, there is currently one scheduled for January 2, 2015, and a very special artisanal tour planned for Spring 2015. Details for the spring tour can be found by clicking http://www.shopthegarmentdistrict.com/2014/11/spring-artisanal-speakeasy.html. If a tour is not for you, you may decide that you would to tackle the area on your own, with a map.
Whether you come to NYC as a tourist or a local, I hope you will enjoy what The Garment District has to offer!
