Where is the garment district and was it flooded in the storm?

"The Garment District, also known as the Garment Center, the Fashion District, or the Fashion Center, is a neighborhood located in the Manhattan borough of New York City. The dense concentration of fashion-related uses give the neighborhood – which is generally considered to lie between Fifth Avenue and Ninth Avenue, from 34th to 42nd Street – its name."

The power is out from 40th Street down. So, the Garment District only has 2 streets with power. The basements are all flooded.

I was wondering this last night when I was watching Project Runway.

I am so sad for all the losses--lives, homes, business--all so tragic.

Thank you for asking this. I was wondering about Mood, but I didn't to seem shallow.

I'm glad to know too. I needed to order some zippers and was looking at zipperstop but then realized they were in NYC so I'll wait.

I think they'd be pleased to have business waiting when they get power back! It'll help make up for all those days with no income!!

IIRC, Mood is up several flights of stairs (4th floor, maybe?). Of course, they may store stock in their basement.

I don't think there was that much flooding in
the garment district. The flooding was more where the land is lower and the garment district is a bit further from the river. The power went because a transformer on 14th street blew. They had turned off power because they were worried about the power stations flooding and got them off-line. All this by way of saying that the power being turned off may not be a direct result of flooding in the garment district basements. power is mostly on in manhattan, some of the subway tunnels are functionin g..but not all. My husband said that he saw tons of garbage on the tracks on 72nd street, probably floating debris from the entire tunnel.

Folks in neighborhoods with power are mobilizing to help people without. The super of our building drove a station wagon stuffed with clothing to the folks in breezy point which is probably the hardest hit neighborhood in the city ( floods and fires).

Stores are collecting goods are are the local community centers. I was teaching today but hope to put in some hours during the week at an evacuation shelter.


friends have cooked food to bring to shelters ( who wouldn't want home cooked food??) I'm guessing that like in most disasters...too much stuff gets donated and not enough $$$$
here are some ways to help how to help post Sandy
