I had to buy flowers for a party over the weekend so I went down to New York's flower district to get some fresh ones. The flower district is essentially just two blocks on west 28th Street now, and is lined with shops selling plants and cut flowers (and some silk flowers too), both wholesale and retail. The busiest time in the flower district is the early morning when people in the business are making their purchases. But later in the day it makes for a colorful stroll amongst all of the beautiful greenery. It smells good there too!
