The Garment District (or Garment Center) is no longer home to New Yorkís fashion industry that has placed itself in less expensive and hipper parts of town. What remain here are the showrooms, light manufacturing, and the suppliers. The button, fabrics, and finishes stores are often open to retail traffic and offer the crafty and fashionable an opportunity for a day of great finds. The list of these places is long, but it starts with M&J on 6th Avenue and 36th Street. The Garment District is also home to many large department stores including Macyís, which is spectacular in the spring when the store is beautifully dressed in flowers.
