About the Garment District

The Garment District is a neighborhood of the New York City borough of Manhattan, located between Fifth and Ninth Avenues from 34th to 42nd Street. It has been known since the early 20th century as the center for fashion design and manufacturing in the United States.

The Garment District is the fashion center of New York City. Approximately one square mile in area, the district is bordered by the Javits Convention Center at the extreme west, the New York General Post Office, Penn Station, and Madison Square Garden in the center, and the Empire State Building in the east. The neighborhood is home to the warehouses and workshops of the fashion industry.

A large proportion of buildings in the Garment District is commerical and light industrial. The area is home to one of the biggest department stores in the country (Macy's), a gigantic sound and video professional store (B&H), General Post Office, not to mention humongous Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, Penn Station, and Madison Square Garden Center.

On February 14, 2007 Planning Commission Chairman Amanda Burden announced that the city would soon unveil its plans for easing zoning rules in the Garment Center that would allow landlords to convert long-standing manufacturing space into Class B and Class C offices. The proposed rezoning would cover an area extending from Broadway to Ninth Avenue and between Times Square and Penn Station.

Garment District Landmarks and History
New York first assumed its role as the center of the nation's garment industry by producing clothes for slaves working on Southern plantations. It was more efficient for their masters to buy clothes from producers in New York than to have the slaves spend time and labor making the clothing themselves. In addition to supplying clothing for slaves, tailors produced other ready-made garments for sailors and western prospectors during slack periods in their regular business.

Prior to the mid-nineteenth century, the majority of Americans either made their own clothing, or if they were wealthy, purchased "tailor-made" customized clothing. By the 1820s, however, an increasing number of ready-made garments of a higher quality were being produced for a broader market.

Manufacturing in the state of New York, and in New York City in particular, faded in the late 20th century. This has been exemplified by the decline of the Garment District. The district lost well over a thousand factory jobs per year, and men pushing racks of garments from one workshop to another ceased to crowd the streets. Factories and showrooms are increasingly becoming condo apartments and retail.
