The Retail Revival In NYC's Meatpacking District

New York City’s Meatpacking District, which earned its name from the slaughterhouses and packing plants that dotted the area in the early 1900s, was primarily a residential neighborhood until farm markets moved in during the 1840s. Today, this district is known for being an up-and-coming retail hub on Manhattan's west side, housing a diverse mix of luxury brands like Hermès and Dior, direct-to-consumer brand storefronts like Warby Parker, tech companies like Google GOOG -0.4% and Tesla TSLA +0.3%, restaurants like Saishin, as well as hotels like the Gansevoort Meatpacking Hotel, which recently underwent a $30 million dollar renovation.
