MEAT MARKET (Meat Packing District) 1990's - FINAL UPDATE - the very last images - REPOST


The Meat Packing District is today one of the hippest neighborhoods of Manhattan and the Highline is now attracting crowds from all around the world.
In the mid-nineties, this area was dark and desolate with the semi-abandoned warehouses of meat purveyors. In the early morning, the butchers going to work were crossing night creatures finishing their shifts. There were a few clubs, hidden on the meat market's dark corners. Jackie 60 and of course the infamous Vault and Manhole in the Triangle Building. After going to the clubs like Nell's on 14th street, Florent on Gansevoort was a real treat. A fun coffee shop with crazy drag waitresses and other strangers of the night. And also great burgers and breakfast for hungry nightclubbers crashing in the morning light. 
Here are some day time shots of this area with its great cinematic quality.
Cameras: Nikon FM2 - Nikor 35mm/f2  / Canon AF35
