District PRofile: Meatpacking District

The Meatpacking District is one of my favorite areas  in the  city – great shopping, amazing food and the best nighclubs. What more could a PR girl want? Located on the west side from West 14th Street to Gansevoort Street, MePa quickly became one of New York’s most fashionable neighborhoods.

TO  DO  The High Line: The spectacular  elevated park starts on Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District and runs to West 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues. Take a stroll during the day or at night to  catch amazing views of the  Hudson River and city skyline.

TO EAT  Pastis: A classic Sex and the City landmark restaurant, this French bistro has the best outdoor seating and a creme brulee worth every calorie.

TO  STAY  The Standard Hotel: One of the trendiest  boutique hotels in the city with a  restaurant (The Standard Grill), beer garden (Biergarten)  and coveted nightclub (Boom Boom Room). It’s unique architecture also makes it a must see of the district.

TO DRINK  Hotel Gansevoort’s  Plunge: The 14th-floor  penthouse of Hotel Gansevoort is a must-see spot to grab a drink next to an outdoor pool and gorgeous view.

TO SHOP  Diane Von Furstenberg: The Meatpacking District  is filled with the best  designer stores (Alexander McQueen, Catherine Malandrino, Stella McCartney,  Rebecca Taylor) but no store makes you feel as  classic and fashionable as Diane’s.
