Back in the 70's this district was disgusting. It was full of hookers, junkies and dealers. Now it is high end. There are name brand boutiques, classy restaurants, snobby hotels and trendy cafes. tourists love the place.

a nice walk through an "old" part of New York nicely restored, it has several nice new shops and places to eat, but I do prefer some other areas

This is the area where you go out with your friends and get your drink on and dance and carouse and find a woman for later.

The area has lots of clubs and high end shops now but just doesn't have much that I really care to do. It's nice to walk or ride thru but not a place I care to hang out.

There are loads of restaurant / pubs / bars and clubs in this neighborhood. Perfect place to spend an evening with friends for bar hopping and clubbing. Very lively area.

We walked through here a couple of times and it’s full of bars and restaurants, so this would be a good place for a bar crawl. You can also start/end the High line here which is a lovely walk and not too long.

I'd suggest staying away from eating or drinking in the area unless you're into the club type atmosphere. There are a few good dining exceptions though. Shopping is plenty though on the higher end. It's nice to walk through the neighborhood.

Say goodbye to the meat packing and the old danger in this formerly dicey area. It's now chock-a-block with high-end designer stores and expensive restaurants. Total transformation.

Use mass transit. It can be awful to walk in the hot summer all those city blocks. You can rent a bicycle.
