Less glizzy in terms of the buildings, but interesting trendy boutiques and eateries ... it gives you a feel of how immigrants lived in the 1800s ... real working class vibes ... also some cool street art

The Meatpacking District used to be super popular in the mid 2000's. It was famous due to amazing restaurants and the famous Ganzevoort Hotel, where Sex and the City was filmed at. It still is quite popular.
