    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.

    If you are in the area...

    South Street Seaport is part shopping mall, part scenic area - don't make a point of stopping, but if you are in the area, it may be a good spot for some lunch, a drink or to sit and relax. The best view of the Brooklyn Bridge is at the east-end patios. In nicer weather, get a beer from one of the vendors and relax there. Plenty of shops if you are in the mood, high-speed ferry across to Brooklyn departs from here, plenty of open-air cobblestoned areas to mingle. It makes a nice spot if you need to "regroup" after a trip to the WTC site or Staten Island Ferry.

    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).

    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

    Waterfront at Pier 17

    by butterflykizzez04 Written Mar 27, 2005

    We walked over to Pier 17 from Battery Park to see the Brooklyn Bridge.

    There are some amazing old tall ships down there and the Pier 17 building is now a mall/eatery.

    nice area to visit, and free to see

    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 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.
