We absolutely loved the garment fashion district and all of the history, "Project Runway" sites, etc! We learned so much about what the immigrants went through to produce beautiful clothes and the rich who wanted nothing to do with them, and the whole history of the area and fashion itself. The statue of the tailor and button/needle and ambience was just amazing. We had a wonderful tour guide from SEEK named Liz, and then walked around ourselves amongst the stores and sights. It's a small area but rich in history. I am a big "Project Runway" fan and loved MOOD-- everyone was so kind and helpful and fun. I am just sorry that I missed Swatch and Tim Gunn! :)
PS-- there are free walking tours available but not when we went and we appreciated the guided tour information--history of garment, fashion, why it's in NYC, etc, etc! There is a fee for the guided tour (SEEK) that we went on, but not to walk around the district.
Most free tours, we learned in NYC from the locals rely on (expect) generous tips....
