We often get requests from people looking to host events on the High Line. Unfortunately, since it's still an active construction site, we can't let people have events up there yet. Many people don't realize that there are lots of great event spaces in the Meatpacking District. Banchet, just steps away from the southern end of the High Line, is one of my favorites.

Demolition has started on Sherrill Hall, the Seminary building that sparked a bitter neighborhood battle in Chelsea last year, when Seminary leaders proposed replacing it with a 17-story building. Scaffolding is up. Signs have been posted about asbestos removal and rat-baiting.

Canadian boutique retailer Ports 1961 is opening their US flagship store in the Meatpacking District (here.) If Racked is correct, Ports' February opening may be delayed. There is a lot more high-end retail on its way to the neighborhood. From  The New York Post :

The final piece of the retail puzzle has been filled at Taconic Investment Partners' 401 W. 14th St. in the Meatpacking District.  Italian fashion designer Moschino has signed a lease for its first freestanding Manhattan boutique there, with 2,700 square feet tucked between the new, tri-level Apple store at the Ninth Avenue corner and Hugo Boss's store to the west...The store will open this spring.

We went to the Ports 1961 runway show-- after the jump.
