Located next to the Financial District where Fulton Street meets the East River, South Street Seaport is a historic neighborhood known for its attractions, shopping, restaurants, nightlife and harbor views. In the summer, locals flock to the area to have beers and frozen margaritas on the pier as well as catch the water taxis and ferries to sites like the Statue of Liberty, the Brooklyn Bridge and Governors Island from Pier 16. Browse the many shops like Victoria’s Secret, Britches of New York, The Body Shop and Filmline Gallery. You can also get to know the area’s rich sea commerce history through the Seaport Museum, as well as ships docked at Pier 17 that act as living museums. For dinner and drinks, simply hop along the many venues on Pier 17 or head to Beekman Beer Garden, which offers a full menu, refreshing beers and close-up views of the Brooklyn Bridge.
I'm normally not in that kind of tourism, but it was the best way to see all New York for the few first day to know where I would like to go back and also use it as a nice transportation between attractions! A great deal to really recommend!
The company was very professional and friendly. Fantastic tour.
Loved it! This is one of the best ways to see a lot of sights and the Viator employees were so kind and helpful. I was on a one day trip and was surprised just how many sights I was able to see in such a short time. I highly suggest using this service and will use them again. They took the stress out of my visit when I did not know the area!
