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.
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.
What an interesting family history, probably packed with stories aplenty.
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!
