A Look at the Meatpacking District, Past and Present

The Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation recently explored the history of 95 Horatio Street on their blog, Off the Grid. As you can imagine, our West Village property was vastly different back in the day.

“These buildings were all constructed between 1897 and 1932…This building is in fact in many ways responsible for the Meatpacking District becoming the Meatpacking District. Back before refrigeration was common, cooled air was produced in these buildings and pumped through an elaborate pipe system to buildings throughout the area to allow them to store meat. Those within the piping system largely became meatpacking plants, and the system largely defined the boundaries of the neighborhood for many years.

The property is now owned by TF Cornerstone…Now located directly across from the new Whitney Museum, the building serves as a perfect location for public art, and to pay homage through art to the building’s role in the neighborhood’s history.”

With its proximity to some of the greatest artwork in the world, it’s not surprising that art dealer Sonia Dutton loved the idea of showcasing the work of various artists at 100 Gansevoort Street.

“Sonia Dutton has always followed her own unconventional path in the art world. She has run a gallery in Austin, Texas — Champion Contemporary — while showing at fairs around the US and launching pop-up exhibition spaces in New York. This year, when the new Whitney Museum of Art was due to open on Gansevoort Street, she chanced into an uncommon opportunity: The use of a massive industrial space, operated by TF Cornerstone, directly across from the relaunched museum. The space currently hosts a two-person show of paintings by Dan Rushton and carved-wood works by Brian Sharrock, both up through July 31.”
