Spandex House-World-Garment District-Store-NYC-001

Just in case you were short on Spandex, along 38th Street in the Garment District are both Spandex House and Spandex World, both filled with all the Spandex one could desire. Spandex House claims to be the “One of the Largest Spandex Collection of The World,” while Spandex World isn’t quite as boastful, “specializing in high-quality spandex.” A step inside is worth it, with types of spandex you probably haven’t dreamt of: printed tie-dye, stretch sequin, giraffe skin, and the latest of printed skulls, just in time for Halloween.

At Untapped Cities, we’re huge fans of stores that sell only one thing–and the Garment District is full of extremely specialized shops in the Garment District, for zippers, buttons, yarn and more.
