An official Path Through History Site! Located along the East River with unparalleled views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the City skyline, the Seaport District is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in New York City. The charming cobblestone streets and historic buildings that make up the city’s oldest waterfront neighborhood continue to bustle with commerce and culture. The Seaport is home to some of the city’s most innovative culinary, fashion, and entertainment experiences that both locals and visitors can enjoy. The South Street Seaport Museum include historic ships like the lightship Ambrose and the schooner Pioneer; a 19th-century letterpress print shop; and a multimedia experience presenting a history of New York, from a settlement of a few hundred Europeans, Africans, and Native Americans to the present.
