THE MEATPACKING
DISTRICT

Explore one of our favorite NYC neighborhoods—and second
home—with Jen, the manager of our Meatpacking store.

Do you live in the neighborhood?
I'm lucky because I live in the West Village, about eight
minutes away down Greenwich Street, so I get to walk to work
every day. Usually I'll stop by Kava Café on Washington
street and pick up some Sencha tea on my way to the store.
We're lucky to be in the best locations in the
neighborhood—we're on a corner so it's very open and we're
literally a minute away from the Hudson River and the
High Line. We also get the best sunsets in the city.

Café:

Buvette

42 Grove St,
New York, NY 10014
between Bleecker +
Bedford Streets

There are so many great restaurants there.
I know—it's hard to choose a favorite, but I love Jody Williams' Buvette.
It's French and has this cozy, Parisian café vibe. You really feel like you
could be in France, but it's also a real neighborhood-y place. A lot of the
girls from the store go there for brunch. I like the Croque Monsieur and
for dinner I usually get the Coq Au Vin—classic!

Stay:

The Jane

113 Jane St,
New York, NY 10014
between Washington +
West Streets

Where’s a good place to stay in the neighborhood?
The Jane Hotel is amazing. It was originally built as a lodging
house for sailors, so it has this quaint, old fashioned-y kind of
cool vibe. Even if you don’t stay there, the bar is beautiful and
definitely worth a visit. Oh, and a little fun history—some of the
survivors of the Titanic stayed there.

"When I leave here I love looking at the High Line
and the sunset is always so beautiful. It’s a nice way to
end the day."

Explore:

The Whitney

99 Gansevoort St,
New York, NY 10014
between Washington
Streets + 10th Avenue

What’s on your must-see list?
Definitely the Whitney Museum of Art, which is their downtown location that opened a couple years ago. The building was
designed by Renzo Piano and has incredible views of the High Line and the river—it’s almost as amazing as the art. I like
to wander over there after work and just explore. They’re hosting the Whitney Biennial for the first time this year—it opened
on March 17th and will be there through June. Go and see it!

Read:

Three Lives &
Company

154 W. 10th St,
New York, NY 10014
between Waverly Place
+ 7th Avenue

Any other favorite stops?
Hmmm. Yes—Three Lives bookstore has an amazing selection and I
always discover something new and unexpected there. It’s just down
the street from us and has a really quaint, neighborhood-y feel.

"Even though it’s such a destination, this is still a very tight-knit
neighborhood. The community really comes together."
