Fodor's Expert Review Fulton Market
This stylish neighborhood is filled with chic restaurants, trendsetting galleries, shops, and showrooms for cutting-edge design and green living. Be aware, though, that it remains a bustling commercial district. During the day the seafood, produce, and meatpacking plants swarm with heavy vehicles helmed by harried drivers. Exercise caution while driving or, better yet, take a cab. At night, be alert: this can still be an iffy area.
