Gansevoort Market, New York City

4.4
The Meatpacking District is a neighborhood in the New York City borough of Manhattan that runs roughly from West 14th Street south to Horatio Street, and from the Hudson River east to Hudson Street, although recently it is sometimes considered to have extended north to West 17th Street and east to Eighth Avenue.
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.

  • There are many tasty foods to choose from with a full bar in the back. I love the Peruvian chicken sandwich. The vendor is in the back next to the bar. I've had that sandwich twice so far and know I will have it again. But their fries though!! Talking about perfect, they are super crispy on the outside and hot and fluffy on the inside with an order big enough to share. So, so good!!
  • They have a great variety of food from all different cultures here. The place is always clean and is updated with a few new restaurants every couple months. Great place to go if you don't know what you want to eat.
