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.
