Chelsea Sewing Center on West 23rd Street.

When we took this photo in early 2009, we thought to ourselves that this business may be in jeopardy as the area surrounding it was changing tremendously including the Garment District. Earlier this year, the mayor announced that he wants to eliminate the Garment District's zoning protections for manufacturing and move manufacturers and fashion firms to the remote eastern area of Sunset Park. This news doesn't bode well for a store that sells and repairs sewing machines and also sells fabrics, notions and buttons. #disappearingfaceofnewyork
