"NYC's historic waterfront district" South Street Seaport Tip by Jefie
South Street Seaport, New York City: 69 reviews and 103 photos
During most of the 19th century, New York City's seaport on East River was the biggest port in the United States. After being more or less abandoned for several decades, South Street Seaport now has a new touristic vocation: over 100 shops and restaurants can be found in the restored buildings located along its charming cobblestone streets, while historic sailing ships are docked at its piers. Although it was fairly quiet when we were there in November, I've got a feeling the area must be pretty crowded in the summertime. Also, what I found the most attractive about the area was the great views it offered of the financial district, Brooklyn Heights and Brooklyn Bridge, so make sure you don't forget your camera!
