Tailor Made in the Garment District

Garment District Tailor Statue, NYC
Photo by myself in the Garment District, around 38th Street and Seventh Avenue.

Fashion Week may be over, but this bronze statue lives outside year-round, a tribute to those in the 'rag trade'.

Fashion showrooms are located in this neighborhood on Seventh Avenue, and there still some stores selling fabric and notions. The majority of manufacturers have moved out of Manhattan, however, since rents are high.

The statue sits in an outdoor plaza with zero public seating. People use what they can find.
