Flower District

The Flower District (shown here on 28th Street between 6th and 7th Avenues) seems to contract in size every year.

This is its prime season, however....

Let me see what I can google:(This from NY Times article):

Manhattan’s century-old flower district occupies little more than a block of West 28th Street, between Avenue of the Americas and Seventh Avenue, whittled down over the years by soaring real estate prices and condominium encroachment. Yet what a block it is: a startlingly verdant oasis that can be explored in less than half a day. Plants, branches, vases and garden accoutrements crowd its sidewalks, and usually cost less than what florists and other vendors charge. Much of the business is wholesale, but many shops now welcome walk-in customers, too. “These days,” one vendor said, “we’ll take anything.”
