“The Seaport is unlike any neighborhood in New York—the anchor of Lower Manhattan filled with great history and exciting experiences on the iconic waterfront.​”

The Seaport

The Seaport is New York City’s original neighborhood, a maritime hub of history located along the East River in Lower Manhattan, with iconic waterfront views of the Brooklyn Bridge and the city skyline.

 It serves as a vibrant home to residents and a global destination for visiting travelers, offering more than 450,000 square feet of entertainment, community, dining, and cultural experiences.

Home to independent businesses such as McNally Jackson Books and Manhattan’s first iPic Theaters, the historic South Street Seaport Museum, and dining and entertainment destination Pier 17®, the Seaport is an epicenter of culture. The neighborhood celebrates emerging and resident artists, local organizations, and community connectivity through programming that includes Seaport Fit, Cinema, Kids, Sounds, and Art.

In 2022, the Seaport welcomed the restored Tin Building, a 53,000-square-foot marketplace curated
by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.

Pier 17®

Pier 17, New York City’s leading dining & entertainment destination, is located at the Seaport.

The Rooftop at Pier 17® is an award-winning outdoor performance venue that hosts the annual Summer Concert Series. The ground floor of Pier 17 features restaurants from acclaimed chefs including Jean-Georges Vongerichten, David Chang, Helene Henderson, and Andrew Carmellini. Pier 17 is also home to ESPN’s live broadcast studios and Nike’s creative office space.

Tin Building

The Tin Building by Jean-Georges is a sprawling new culinary destination located in lower Manhattan’s historic Seaport.

The culmination of chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s lifetime desire to open his own marketplace and the most ambitious project of his career to date, the 53,000-square foot building is unlike anything else in the city. Inspired by the myriad of flavors that define him as a chef (from his childhood in France to traveling and working throughout America, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, Mexico, and Europe), the immersive concept is also Vongerichten’s tribute to the Seaport’s now-shuttered Fulton Fish Market, which operated by the waters of the East River for nearly 200 years.

Set under the shadow of the Brooklyn Bridge, the two-story building offers an unexpected array of culinary experiences designed to delight and engage the senses–including multiple restaurants with open kitchens, innovative retail concepts, and an impeccably stocked central market with locally sourced seafood, meats, cheeses, seasonal produce, chef-grade pantry staples, and rare ingredients.
