Jane's Walk: Unpacking The Meatpacking District: A 360 Degree View from Gansevoort Plaza, May 7, 11
05/07/2022 11:00 AM - 11:50 AM ET


  • Free


Stroll the Meatpacking District from the vantage point of Gansevoort Plaza with Jacquie Ottman, whose family’s storied meat purveying business parallels that of the Meatpacking District itself.
This magical -- and most unusual intersection of five Manhattan blocks spans over four centuries of NYC transformation. Start this part-history, part-memoir tour learning about the Lenape Trail, enjoy architectural highlights including a stunning example of Arts & Crafts architecture built by the Astors, and imagine this busy Belgian block-paved intersection during the days when meat hung from screeching metal canopies early in the morning. Get answers to questions such as What was here before the glam and the glitz? before Florent and Pastis? — from someone who experienced the District during its heyday in the 1970s, first hand.
