The Meatpacking District: Past Present Future

The MPIA (Meatpacking District Improvement Association) and The Standard, New York teamed up to make this little mini-documentary about the history and transformation of the neighborhood. Christine Quinn summed it up when she says, "If you had said 20 years ago that the Meatpacking District is going to be a cultural hub, people would have looked at you like you were in some kind of beef-induced overdose haze, and you had lost your mind." Imagine what they would have thought if you had said the Whitney was moving in.
