The "Garment District" of New York City

I recently returned from a brief business trip in New York City. My "bidness" was in Manhattan, so I found an inexpensive (this is a relative term for New York City) place to stay in "The Garment District." Apparently, this is the center of New York's fashion industry. Now that I've been there, I'm really surprised that the fashions emanating are made from anything other than plastic garbage bags and cardboard--the two most abundant materials in the garment district.

In all seriousness, if you're looking for a good place to stay in Manhattan, I'd recommend the Wingate Inn in Midtown Manhattan. The surroundings may be a bit interesting, but it's affordable and close to the more popular spots in the city.
