Take a step back to New York City's nautical past by visiting the South Street Seaport. During the era of Tall Ships, the South Street Seaport was one of the nations busiest ports, and you'll have an opportunity to step back in time when you visit one of the three historical vessels that are moored there. You can sit, relax and enjoy the sea air and spectacular views of the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Williamsburg bridges or visit the South Street Seaport Museum.The Seaport also has dining available for every budget, from their fantastic food court to fine restaurants like the Pacific Grill or Harbour Lights. There are also many opportunities to shop at South Street Seaport and Pier 17. Anne Klein, Beneton, J. Crew, Coach, Gap and Godiva are just a few shops available in the quaint seaport village as well as on Pier 17.
Since the South Street Seaport is only a few blocks away from the Staten Island Ferry and the ferry to the Statue of Liberty, its a great venue to add to your list of things to see and do in Lower Manhattan when you visit New York City.
