Explore the South Street Seaport


    Added by Margo Schmiederer

    An exciting and historical part of the city to explore

    Get a feel for what New York was like in the 19th century at the Seaport! The Seaport boasts some of the oldest buildings and architecture in Manhattan, and the area continues to bustle today. The Seaport borders the Financial District and the East River - so there are lots of wonderful sights to take in, in addition to great shopping, eateries, and entertainment. 

    Parking in New York is a nightmare, but you can take the 2 or the 3 subway to Fulton Street and walk a few blocks to the hub of the Seaport.

    Love the seaport

    Makes you feel like you've stepped outside of the city because its the old cobblestone roads/sidewalks... but in the backdrop is the financial district. Check it out.
