Seaport District NYC
Located in Lower Manhattan, the historic Seaport District was New York’s original commercial hub. A vibrant mix of old and new, today Seaport District NYC is a dynamic cultural, culinary, fashion, and entertainment district, featuring some of the oldest architecture in the city, as well as stunning views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the iconic city skyline.
 
The Basics
Explore the rich history of the area, formerly known as South Street Seaport, from the original buildings and streets to the historic tall ships. Indulge in some retail therapy at a chic boutique or take in a movie, concert, or other special event. Enjoy a drink or a bite to eat while taking in stunning waterfront views.
 
Look for guided walking tours of Manhattan that include the Seaport District, or join a private or small-group sightseeing tour by bicycle, vintage taxi, or limo for a more personal and specialized experience. Opt for a hop-on hop-off bus tour to explore top city sites at your leisure, or take to the air in a helicopter tour for an unbeatable, bird’s-eye view. Popular add-ons include a sightseeing boat cruise around Manhattan.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Seaport District is ideal for families, shoppers, and foodies.
  • Wear comfortable shoes to navigate the cobblestone streets.
  • Public restrooms are located at Pier 16.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available at many spots in the district.
 
How to Get There
The Seaport District is located at Fulton Street, near the East River. It’s easiest to take the subway here (A, C, J, Z, 2, 3, 4, 5 train to Fulton Street or the E train to Chambers Street–World Trade Center). A number of buses also stop at nearby Water Street (intersection of John Street or Maiden Lane). Or you can take a ferry to Pier 11/Wall Street and walk north.
 
When to Get There
The Seaport District can be visited at any time to enjoy the views. Different establishments will have different opening hours, with restaurant and bars keeping later hours than shops. From May to October, you can set sail on one of the historic ships around Pier 16.
 
South Street Seaport Museum
Located at Pier 16, the South Street Seaport Museum is a 30,000-square-foot (2,787-square-meter) maritime museum that includes exhibition galleries, a library, conservation lab, historic 19th-century print shop, and craft center. Don't miss the museum’s privately owned fleet of historic ships, some of which are available to take passengers around the harbor in season.
