NYC Garment District Maps

The Speakeasy map is constantly updated due to the changes the pandemic, significant economic challenges, and new opportunities have brought to the area.

I can't pretend the district isn't changing daily now... While it is still a rich, lively and inspiring place to find tools, notions, services and supplies, it is also a treacherous labyrinth of drugged-out zombies, empty storefronts, screaming homeless, extremely tense professionals, and unpredictable business hours. Because it is still full of secrets, and non-street-level establishments, a plan, a map, and information are vital to an enjoyable, efficient trip.

Having said that...

The "Speakeasy map" is an ever-evolving map of garment district stores and services that I have found over many years of creating/designing, selling, buying, learning, and interacting with the many businesses here in NYC. The list is ever-changing, because the district is ever-changing as well!

* You do not need a PayPal account to pay via PayPal.  That is the secure service that allows electronic payments, using a debit or credit card.

The payment tab below is for a curated shopping map with descriptions of the best stores (and why I love them). It is $15, and can be purchased online via Paypal.  The map lists many of the places we have visited on various speakeasies, and is ever-evolving. The map will be sent to you as a link, generally within 24 hours of your order. 

You may purchase a map by using the payment button directly below.  Note: almost every order generates an edit these days, since I make sure the stores are still there, offering quality inventory, and still open before sending to to you.

Speakeasy shopping trips!


So excited!  The first one is TOMORROW!!!! (written July 25)

If you have registered for a Garment District Shopping Tour in July or August 2023, look out for an email from me on/by July 20th confirming our meeting place, and some other details specific to your excursion. (note - you should have received an email from me by now.)  The  itinerary for each day will be different, so the email your receive will contain details which are specific to your group.

Things to know:

  • Wear comfortable walking shoes
  • Bring along a rolling bag to reduce fatigue - some stores will ship for you,  but not all.
  • Let me know if you have any food allergies/unique dietary needs the restaurant will need to consider.
  • Dress appropriately for the weather.
