The South Street Seaport has been a number of things to an array of types. It is a romantic viewpoint for love birds, it is a hub for foodies, it’s a trinket of uniqueness for shop-a-holics. It’s been a playground for children and adults alike – even a doggie park so that our fluffy friends don’t feel left out. This was historically a fish market and the stories behind this memorable spot can all be seen behind the pictures of the times, especially in the museum. The museum has amazing exhibits that rotate by season.
Unfortunately, the superstorm Sandy affected this beautiful spot, but one thing that can’t be washed away with any tide is the beautiful view you have of the Brooklyn Bridge and of the beautiful East River and Wallabout Bay. It has since been masterfully restored and offers fantastic atmosphere, top notch food, and even a theatre now. Very modern and upscale at affordable prices *relatively*
When the skies are blue, as they usually are in NYC, and the wind is calm, catch yourself strolling around this part of town, taking in the views and dining at one the many spots the South Street Seaport has to offer. The local outdoor market is enticing from May 31 – Dec 31
In the evening try the hidden speakeasy Mr Cannon and see what life was like during the prohibition.
Oh…did I even mention the sail boats?!
