South Street Seaport

There are so many tourist attractions in NYC, its hard to keep count of them all. Servicing tourists (and locals) from all walks of life, with varied interests, there is no doubt a fountain of attractions for history buffs, fashion obsessed, and of course, it is foodie heaven. Every square inch of Manhattan is packed with things to do, look at, and/or revel in. One place, that serves as a historical foundation for the city, is the South Street Seaport. Located on the lower east tip of the island, it sits in stark contrast to the tremendous steel mountain range that is the financial district. It is the perfect juxtaposition of old, turn of the century New York, and new New York.

 

This historic area hosts the largest number of restored early 19th century buildings, many of which served as commercial spaces. In modern times, the South Street Seaport houses several modern retail boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and ample night life. Home to one of the earlier piers in lower Manhattan, Pier 17 is currently undergoing restoration, but is slated for completion at the end of 2016/early 2017.

 

South Street Seaport boasts many attractions for art lovers! The South Street Seaport museum occupies 12 city blocks, housing tens of thousands of square feet of: exhibition and educational spaces, a 19th century print shop, and America’s National Maritime Museum.

 

If all this isn’t enough to sell you on this historic area, South Street Seaport has some of the best views of the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge!
