Photo by myself on Broadway and 28th Street, near the Flatiron Building.
On a couple blocks along Broadway in the upper 20's, you can find several stores selling wigs made from human hair.
This area is loosely called the 'Perfume District', for the wholesale stores selling perfume, cosmetics and handbags.
This area looks sketchy, with lots of aimless men hanging out on the corners. It's perfectly safe, however, just steps away from Herald Square.
