The well-known skyline of South Manhattan
In this area there are a lot of activities and interesting sights mainly during the day on weekdays, esp. if you want to visit the financial quarter.
South Street from the Brooklyn Bridge until the South Ferry (to Governors and Staten Island) and the Battery Park (ferry to Liberty and Ellis Island) along the East River.
You can find the South Street Seaport (and Pier 17) is a historic part of the city, once neglected, now a very lively place with shops, restaurants and ships, a market place and an ex-warehouse, Schermerhorn Row which is now a tourist center.

Shopping... eating... fish!
Ok, while many people may agree that the area around South Street Seaport is a bit smelly and crumby, I happen to like it. The seaport itself is bustling with people and attractions, as well as food and shopping for less cost. There are many major retailers at the seaport, as well as specialty stores.
Part of Fulton Street near the seaport has been converted to a pedestrian mall, and has many stores on it.
Our friends took us here right after we got off the Brooklyn Bridge. It was a nice place to grab a bite to eat. There are also many places to go shopping in this area. This is a boat that was right next to the pier.
Lower Manhattan's historic waterfront
Very nice area for shopping and restaurants. Breathtaking views to Brooklyn and on the Brooklyn Bridge, a maritime museum and a relaxing scenery (probably not at weekend or on holiday).

South Street Seaport
Part museum and part shopping area, South Street seaport has old sailing ships you can tour as well as an array or restuarants and gift stores.
If you saw a romantic film made in New York , you probably saw this place. Is a beautiful seaport where you could get a beautiful view of Brooklyn Bridge
- Romantic Travel and Honeymoons
Lot of shops and fast food restaurants. If you're lucky enough to catch a table near window, or if it is not to cold to take an outside seat, you can enjoy in view of Brooklyn.
Site Seeing at South Street...
Site Seeing at South Street Seaport with tall ships, souviner shopping, and where we had to get tickets for the WTC observation deck.
The tall ships look neet up against the lower Manhattan skyline.
