The Meatpacking District Will Pack Meat No Longer

08.27.12 Joshua Rivera

Not like we didn’t see it coming or anything.

Weischel Beef has moved out of the place of business where it has been for the past 45 years. Now that their lease at 525 Washington Street has run out and building owners TF Cornerstone want to convert the space into another high end retail spot, it’s official: the Meatpacking district is over as far as meat is concerned. No one packs meat there anymore outside of the city-controlled co-op on West 12th Street, which Weischel will be moving to as well.
