A rough guide to the Diamond district New York
You will find this busy and vibrant region to be situated in midtown Manhattan. The district is located on West 47th Street, and is mainly concentrated between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue. Simply walk south of Rockafeller Center for around one block, and you will wind up slap bang in the heart of the Diamond District New York.
The district first became popular with diamond merchants way back in 1941 during the Second World War. As Nazi Germany continued their assault on central Europe, thousands of diamond dealers across the Netherlands and Belgium were forced to flee the diamond districts of Antwerp and Amsterdam, and head for the relatively safe ground of the New York City. In the years following the end of the war, many of the diamond dealers who had come over from Europe decided that they would stay.
Prior to this, earlier diamond districts were established near Canal Street back in the 1920’s, and there was also a smaller district of diamond buyers and sellers situated over in the financial district which was started in around 1931. All of this of course, was prior to its eventual migration to its current location.
But it is in its current location and format that the New York’s world famous diamond district has managed to become the powerhouse in diamond trade that it is today.
