Okay, this is my first attempt to do a blog post with pictures on my new iPad. There appears to be a glitch in that loading pictures from iPad to Blogger doesn't work without jumping through some hoops and downloading some apps.
While in NYC last week, we met up with a friend from the theatre department at the university here, who was on a buying trip in NYC getting costumes and fabric to bring back here.
She invited us to come back to the Garment District with her to see an authentic part of NYC that we'd never see in all the touristy sections we normally frequent.
She took us up in a warehouse that was full of fabrics, machines, clothing, tailors, and her friend,who makes clothes for T.V. shows and Broadway shows. Her friend gave us a tour of the various workshops and was very generous with her time, answering all our questions and allowing us to take pictures. She told us how the District warehouses all used to be full of workers, but now a lot of the work had gone overseas. It was such an awesome experience to go behind the scenes to see all of this.
I don't know if the pictures will post or how to get descriptions next to each picture, so I will publish this now and if the pix don't show up, I will come back later to load them.
