Concentrated in a few blocks of what is essentially the West Village, between the Hudson River and 9th Avenue, from Little West 12th Street to about West 17th Street, the Meatpacking District used to be the center of the wholesale meat industry for New York City. There are few meat markets left in this now rather quaint cobblestone area, but it's definitely a figurative meat market at night, when the city's trendiest frequent the equally trendy restaurants and bars here. The area is also home to some of the city's swankiest retailers, with high-profile fashion designers and labels like Christian Louboutin, Diane von Furstenberg, Ted Baker London, and Tory Burch, as well as lesser-known boutiques like Warby Parker, Kilian, and The Kooples.
