Mayor Bloomberg Wants Fashion Week to Move to Hudson Yards

Lincoln Center.

In a press conference yesterday, Mayor Bloomberg announced that he hopes the Hudson Yards development site in far-west midtown will eventually host Fashion Week. Plans for the 26-acre site spanning blocks in the thirties and forties by the water include a "sprawling, modern center," to be called the Culture Shed, which is where, if the Mayor has his way, Fashion Week will eventually take place. “Fashion week has grown so much. It’s outgrown Lincoln Center already ... We need to make sure that we have the venues for these kinds of events and the Cultural Shed is one of those buildings,” he said.
