    South Street Seaport offers some great shopping options with beautiful views of the Brooklyn Bridge and Brooklyn Promenade. Come here early and watch the boats dock for the day.

    Dedicated to NY's maritime history, South Street Seaport is known for its water taxis and large boats. But stroll down the peer with an ice cream cone to feel like you’re almost on a beach boardwalk.

    So sad that the original south street seaport mall has to close down because of hurricane sandy :(. The new south street seaport can’t compare, but there is a huge improvement - plenty of new stores!

    There’s no better way to watch a movie than with the city skyline as the backdrop. Over the summer, New York offers a number of free outdoor film screenings in various locations throughout the city.

    The port now features many shops and restaurants but we recommend the South Street Seaport Museum for an in depth look at what was once one of the busiest seaports in America.

    This is one of the oldest neighborhoods in NYC. Just follow your nose and walk! Stop by Fishmarket for some fresh oyster or sip up some well curated bottles at Pasanella & Son Vintners next door.
