South Street Seaport showcases the historic area where Fulton Street meets the East River. Converted 19th-century mercantile buildings house Seaport’s restaurants and exhibition spaces, while Pier 17 greets visitors with the familiar sight of conventional chain stores on an uncommon platform—national retailers compose the neighborhood's floating mall. Seaport’s incessant foot traffic can be attributed in part to its shopping diversions, but many appreciate this neighborhood for its views of NYC’s Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges and restored old-world ships.See 31 places to stay Save this neighborhood
