MAS & Fashion Center BID Map the Garment District
February 8th, 2011, 5:03 pm
Just in time for Fashion Week, the Municipal Art Society (MAS) and the Fashion Center Business Improvement District (BID) have partnered to publish a set of maps documenting the most up-to-date directory of fashion related services in the Garment District. By mapping the directory, MAS and the Fashion Center BID believe that this information will be easier to access and clearer to use.
“These maps will help emerging and established designers, buyers and international visitors navigate the wealth of fashion resources housed in the district,” said MAS President Vin Cipolla. “These are the resources that make the Garment District a hub of innovation and New York City a fashion capitol of the world,” he continued.
Based on the Fashion Center BID’s 2010 tenant survey, the maps show the location of 3,348 services supporting the fashion industry that are housed in the blocks between West 35th and 41st Streets, from 5th to 9th Avenues. There are four different maps—one depicts all fashion industry services in the district, and the other three maps break down the data to services geared toward production, suppliers and buyers.
The four maps are available for download below and at fashioncenter.com. To explore the thousands of fashion companies behind the dots on the maps, visit the Fashion Center BID’s searchable database – www.fashioncenter.com/fashion-directory.
