WHAT DOES DIAMOND DISTRICT MEAN IN ENGLISH?

diamond district

Diamond District

The Diamond District is an area of New York City located on West 47th Street between Fifth Avenue and Sixth Avenue in midtown Manhattan, within walking distance of many New York attractions. It is located one block south of Rockefeller Center, three blocks south of Radio City Music Hall, three blocks south of St Patrick's Cathedral, and one block east of the Broadway Theater District. The Plaza Arcade, lined with shops, connects the street to Rockefeller Center. The district was created when dealers moved north from an earlier district near Canal Street and the Bowery that was created in the 1920s, and from a second district located in the Financial District, near the intersection of Fulton and Nassau Streets, which started in 1931. The move uptown started in 1941. The district grew in importance when Nazi Germany invaded the Netherlands and Belgium, forcing thousands of Orthodox Jews in the diamond business to flee Antwerp and Amsterdam and settle in New York City. Most of them remained after World War II, and remain a dominant influence in the Diamond District.
