Fabric Row Review

In the early 1900s, 4th Street, today's Fabric Row, was teeming with pushcarts selling calico, notions, and trimming, and was known as "der Ferder" or "the Fourth" in Yiddish. Today several century-old fabric stores still stand, but many of the storefronts are home to locals selling wares from European-label shoes to fair-trade coffee.
