The Garment District is tiny now, compared to how it used to be. It is now reduced to a few blocks on the west side, between 40th and 36th Streets, in Midtown.
There are stores selling fabrics, buttons and sewing supplies. There are also some designers there and work rooms that produce clothing. It is not uncommon to see guys pushing racks of dresses or coats down the sidewalk.
