South Street Seaport

Home > New York > Shopping
Published October 8th 2009
The South Street Seaport at Pier 17 in Lower Manhattan has the triple-play of scenery, history, food, and shopping.

The Seaport is a part historical, part commercial district and as such there's a museum and some finely preserved and renovated buildings in the area. Not just on Fulton Street but also Beekman, Dover Street and Peck Slip.

New Yorkers not only come to the Seaport for the specialty food stalls and the unique shops, but also to enjoy the culture and the historic value. There are ships at the Seaport that each have a story to tell.

Besides the Seaport's historical background, if you're into shopping this is one of those places you can indulge yourself with stores like Ann Taylor, Express and Coach. If you're with family you might want to go to places like Cartoon World, Brookstone and Beyond the Wall which will keep the kids entertained.

When you're done with taking in the view, soaking up the history, and lightening your wallet head down to the Bodies Exhibition. It costs a wack to get in, but you'll never forget it.
