  1. The composition of this image leaves me wanting to follow that angle right into the garment district. I remember this area from my one and only visit to NYC in 1978. I was nearly run down by someone pushing a rack of clothing.

    1. Very rare to see someone pushing a rack of clothing through the street. The Garment District is there mostly in name these days. My great grandfather was a tailor. My maternal grandmother made hats and umbrellas. My father was a buyer of children’s clothing for a department store in Brooklyn. Sad to see this industry disappear.

      1. I’m sure there were plenty of stories. Unfortunately, all are passed from those that worked in that era. I should ask my mom for any stories. She’s 93 and going strong!
