The Meatpacking District is always a party but things reached another level on Thurs., Sept. 14, when 4,000 people flooded the streets for the Diner en Blanc. The event, more than a decade old, previously has been held at places like Lincoln Center and Bryant Park. But this was the first time the white-clad guests dined at tables filling the streets — make that historic-district cobblestone streets.
