Streets of the Meatpacking District

The streets of the Meatpacking District. The Meatpacking District is an interesting area of NYC that has undergone quite a transformation over the years. Once home to over 250 packing establishments and the like, it became an area known for all kinds of shady activity during the 1980's. These days, one can find high-end shops in the area (and only a couple dozen meat-packing places). One aspect that I enjoy can be seen here... The old school look of the streets.
