The Seaport district was a former port area of Manhattan, but now it’s buzzing with bars, restaurants and designer shops. The area offers great views of Brooklyn and Brooklyn Bridge and has a huge new shopping and dining development at Pier 17.
You can still catch a boat at the Seaport, as it’s a stop for New York Water Taxis and also for sightseeing cruises. You can also now take a ferry from the Seaport to Brooklyn Bridge Park over the river. The area is home to the Seaport Music Festival and Pier 16 is a prominent location in the movie “I Am Legend”. The South Street Seaport Museum is located here and it’s a regular stop for most of New York’s Hop-on, Hop-off Bus Tours.
South Street Seaport is open Monday to Friday from 10am to 9pm and Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 7pm.
