I love going to the South Street Seaport district and Pier 17 where you can view the ships, shop and/or eat in the restaurant right on the Pier. I would buy coffee or a glass of wine and go up to the second or third...More

For meager fee of $12 we got an hour long informative tour of the vessels at the Seaport. Katie was very knowledgeable. Not all of the museum has reopened from the ravages of Super Storm Sandy. The available displays were very interesting.

This area was redeveloped a number of years ago to attract the tourists with its sea port style. Many of the restaurants and shops here are chains so they could be anywhere. I come here for the TKTS booth, but for nothing else.

Chock full of shops and eateries, coupled with interesting nautical displays and a museum...its a nice place to spend a day, you can also catch the Circle Line ferry around Manhattan here. Indoor and outdoor mall with many good attractions.

A sorry excuse for a seaport. So lets hope the new one will be exciting and worthy of visitors and locals alike

Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial
District is where New York City began as a center of
commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful
setting are complemented by museums, countless
skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District,
home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange.
Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view
of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis
