NEW YORK — Frustrated that talks with city officials about the Garment Center’s rezoning have stalled, designers and union officials staged a Midtown rally Tuesday to try to rev up interest in their cause.
For years, city officials and other interested parties have debated behind closed doors how best to modernize the neighborhood without losing its manufacturing core, but resolutions have yet to be finalized, or even presented for the public to consider. An influx of creative companies, such as advertising and graphic design firms, have moved into the area, as well as hotels, cafes and restaurants that are more than a notch up than the mom-and-pop shops and delis that used to have a lock hold.
