South Street Seaport
This seaport dates back to the 1600's. It was remodeled to become a historic landmark as well as a shopping mall. The South Street Seaport features amazing views of the East River and the Brooklyn Bridge . The mall is divided into three sections; one based in the original home of New York City's fish market, another at Pier 17 along the water, and the final section in the Fulton Market building near South Street. A center of activities, events, a maritime museum, dining and shopping, this is an important NYC experience!
Oh how I really miss this place. I'm originally from Brooklyn,NY but now I live in Virginia. I would go to this place at least once a week during the spring and summer months. I just love the atmosphere and the crowds, the places to eat and the seaport party boat rides. Norfolk Waterside cannot does not have anything on South Street Seaport.
It's very charming and easy to get taxis from - a plus. Restaurants are great and you can easily walk across the Brooklyn Bridge or get a water taxi from Pier 17.
The only bad things are it's noisy at night (until they move the Fish Market) and it does reek of fish!
This might be one of the best places to shop during the holiday season. Smaller crowds, great selections and "hands down", the best Santa in the City and maybe best of all, The Singing Christmas Tree. You can keep Rockerfeller Center, for my money, this is the best place to get into the holiday spirit.
South Street Seaport is loike a min vacation when you visit NY. When you walk down the few blocks that make up the seaport, you feel like you are strolling down the streets of a small New England town.
