|The Skyscraper Museum
|Current Exhibit: Urban Fabric-- Building New York's Garment
The largest concentration of high-rise factories, the 18 blocks at
the heart of New York's Garment District once supported more
than 100,000 manufacturing jobs and produced nearly 3/4 of all
American women's and children's apparel. Developed almost
entirely in the boom decade of the 1920s, this dense, teeming
area of west midtown-from 35th to 41st Streets and from Seventh
to Ninth Avenues-has a rich, but little-known history, examined for
the first time in this engaging exhibit.
The Skyscraper Museum is in lower Manhattan at 39 Battery Place.
Hours are 12-6pm, Wed-Sun. Admission is $5, or $2.50 for
students and seniors.
