Oh hey, perhaps we're being too hard on the Meatpacking District as a hive of tourists. We're sure that lots of locals still hang out there, right? So what if they're from France, Italy, and/or Texas. New York is all about the melting pot. Good thing, as the only actual New Yorker we found on a night of crawling the neighborhood was a tranny who couldn't get into the Hog Pit.
