Thoughts on being displaced from the NYC Fashion District.

We have been searching for a new location for our shop for about six weeks  now. The building we are in has been sold. As an ongoing buisness the company has been here since 1959. Our present location on 39th street in midtown is in what was once the Millinery District of the fashion district of Manhattan, but the Millinery District is non existent now and the Fashion District is very Fragmented and shrinking. For years we have been the observers of the decline of the area in respect to the Fashion industry. With the sale of the building we are among the victims  of the downsizing of the New York Garment Center.

Our location once part of the Fashion district because it served the Fashion industry is to be replaced by a hotel. Another hotel,  to join the existing hotels in the District. Combined with the offices in the area, the Fashion district houses an ever shrinking group of Fashion related business. We are being replaced by another corporate owned hotel.

Though we were initially overwhelmed by this turn of events. We've come to realize that Midtown Manhattan has been reshaped into something we are no longer a part of. On a artistic level, our old Neighborhood has little to offer. Midtown Manhattan is just no longer where we belong anymore. We had become comfortable in our own space , And did not really think about the environment outside our doors . Midtown has grown into a corporate environment , Not a Suitable environment for us . Being displaced has caused us to re assess what it is that we do. This is a opportunity to grow and to evolve into something that could not happen in the shadows of midtown.
