What You Can Expect
The Seaport was renowned for its majestic tall ships and Federalist buildings dating back to the late 1700s. One of its previous claims to fame was the Fulton Fish Market, once the most important East Coast wholesale fish market. Today, the Seaport is a thriving area for shopping and dining establishments. In fact, it now operates primarily as a mall and tourism center. Visitors can choose from among a variety of shops and a food court, while outside decks provide views of the East River, the Brooklyn Bridge and Brooklyn Heights.
On this walking tour, see the Titanic Memorial lighthouse at the entrance of the Seaport, a 60-foot-tall structure built to remember the people who died on the RMS Titanic in 1912. Visit the Bridge Café, New York City's oldest drinking establishment, and Jeremy’s Ale House, a respite for first responders on 9/11.
Hear the gripping stories of the Seaport's turbulent past and discover some of the sights and perspectives rarely seen even by locals.
A good way to understand more about the history of this part of NY, and see how it has developed through to today. Well narrated, and we covered a lot of ground in the time available.
