Twelve square blocks of cobblestone streets with shops and historic vessels define the cultural marketplace along the Lower Manhattan waterfront known as the South Street Seaport.  In the early days of this republic, sailing ships ruled the seas, and this particular neighborhood is one place to find NY apartments in a historical, and beautiful waterfront atmosphere.  


But when steamships took over, the waterfront buildings and historic ships of yesteryear fell into decline.  However, the old buildings have recently been restored and the South Street Seaport neighborhood has been transformed into one of New York's most fascinating and educational attractions.


If you're lucky enough to move into one of the South Street Seaport apartments, you will be surrounded by the city's incredible seafaring history.


Several historical sites can be found throughout the Seaport neighborhood, which extends from Water Street to the East River between John Street and Peck Slip.  Visitors can climb aboard many tall, historic ships (square-riggers) such as the four-masted Peking.  The "Street of Ships" is home to more than 120 shops, restaurants, eateries and pushcarts filled with gifts and seaport souvenirs.


An all-year-round attraction, Pier 17 Pavilion is the shopping, dining, and entertainment center of the Seaport neighborhood.  Built directly over the water, the area contains shops and food stalls such as The Sharper Image, Daikichi Sushi, Chinese fast food Wok and Roll and great views of the harbor.  Concerts and other special events take place here during the summer months.  Built in 1982, the Fulton Market Building draws groups from all over to its large convention arena which now houses Zaro's Bread Basket. For the fresher fish in town - the Fulton Market Retail Fish Market.
