Entry from December 25, 2004
Bridal Row; Wedding Row
A Lower East Side Street (I forget which) was said to have so many wedding shops that it was called "Bridal Row." That name doesn't seem to come up in the digitized New York Times database.

It's been said that New Utrecht Avenue in Brooklyn is "Wedding Row." The 2005 departure of Kleinfeld's from Bay Ridge was widely reported in May 2005 as a blow to Bay Ridge, Brooklyn's "Bridal Row."

Plot Summary for
This Is America: Street of Shadows (1946)

An entry in RKO's "This is America" series that served as the replacement for "The March of Time" series that had been moved to 20th Century-Fox distribution by Time/Life. Ths film concentrates on life in NYC's Bowery where the elevated railway made streets with shadows. The camera takes a trip to New York's lower East Side with looks at Chinatown, Cooper Union, Bridal Row, Fulton's Fish Market, St. Marks and diamond row. The work done by the Bowery Mission, the Boys Club and the Salvation Army is also shown.

27 May 2005, New York Sun, "Gotham-Bound Kleinfeld Leaves Bay Ridge 'Bridal Row' Businesses at Altar," pg. 4:
The wide selection of designer gowns at Kleinfeld Bridal was such a magnet for brides-to-be that other wedding-related shops popped up near the Brooklyn boutique. With Kleinfeld's owner planning to move the shop to Manhattan in July, however, the future of the Bay Ridge strip known as Bridal Row looks uncertain.
