The Seaport is New York’s original commercial hub, located on the East River in Lower Manhattan with unparalleled views of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Statue of Liberty and the city skyline. An essential part of the city for over 300 years, the re-envisioned Seaport will continue to function as a community anchor and iconic waterfront destination for the rapidly growing population of Lower Manhattan. The Howard Hughes Corporation® is leveraging the Seaport’s history as the birthplace of innovation as it transforms a district spanning several city blocks, creating approximately 450,000 square feet of dynamic culinary, entertainment and unique cultural experiences.
Highlights include Pier 17®, a one-of-a-kind entertainment destination with a 1.5-acre rooftop that serves as a year-round community amenity and cultural and event space. The Rooftop at Pier 17 transforms seasonally from a Winterland experience, complete with the city’s first open-air rooftop ice skating rink, to an outdoor performance venue named “Best New Concert Venue” by Pollstar that hosts the Seaport's annual Summer Concert Series. Pier 17 is also a culinary destination, home to accalimed restaurants such as The Fulton by Jean-Georges Vongerichten, Helene Henderson's Malibu Farm, David Chang's Momofuku Ssäm Bar, and Andrew Carmellini's Carne Mare and Mister Dips, along with the year-round rooftop dining experience The Greens. Pier 17 is also home to ESPN’s live broadcast studios, and Nike’s creative office space.
