The Meatpacking District owes its name and aesthetic to the industries that once called it home. Slaughterhouses, packing plants, and lamp oil factories were the neighborhood’s main claims to fame between the late 1800s and mid-20th century. The 1990s are generally considered the birth of the present-day Meatpacking District -- a time of cultural and residential resurgence in which now-classic restaurants such as Valbella and “it” clothing designers including Diane Von Furstenberg and Stella McCartney paved the way for a slew of high-end shops and eateries to follow and continue to define the district to this day.
