New York Street Style: The Far West Village Has Its Fashion Moment

The decision to house the new men’s fashion week at Skylight Studio in Clarkson Square is just one of many developments that have reinvigorated the Far West Village—that stretch of New York’s Greenwich Village running from Hudson Street to the Hudson River. This year alone, the Whitney Museum decamped to Gansevoort Street, hotspot Santina opened its doors below the newly completed High Line, and Gansevoort Market gained traction as a food hall worth frequenting. We sent photographer Melodie Jeng (@melodiejeng) to capture the stylish hordes who’ve followed New York’s culture to the water. There’s never been a better time to go west.
