Pre-colonialA Native American trading station called "Sapohanikan" was on the riverbank, which, accounting for landfill, was located about where Gansevoort Street meets Washington Street today. The footpath that led from Sapohanikan inland to the east became the foundation for Gansevoort Street, which by accident or design aligns, within one degree, to the spring and autumnal equinoxes. In recognition of this history, petitions were made to call the 14th Street Park "Saphohanikan Park" although it appears no formal recognition was given.
Initial developmentThe earliest development of the area now known as the Meatpacking District came in the mid-19th century. Before that it was the location of Fort Gansevoort and of the upper extension of Greenwich Village, which had been a vacation spot until overtaken by the northward movement of New York City. The irregular street patterns in the area resulted from the clash of the Greenwich Village street system with that of the Commissioners' Plan of 1811, which sought to impose a regular grid on the undeveloped part of Manhattan island.

In most restaurants, there are places to sit and shared tables. It was at a store in the Gansevoort Market that I ate one of the most delicious cookies of my life: they are always warm... Hmmm. On the outside, the place is ugly, but it is stuffed with good places for meals. Like any market of this type, at peak lunch times, there will be queue/wait.

The palate of one appreciates it. Personally enjoy hamburgers local where I thought it was delicious. There are other options and each can find and enjoy yours.
The authenticity you won't find in most places outside of China. Amazing food and street food prices. The food plaza is right next to a huge supermarket where you can find all things Chinese. Highly recommended!
