An essential part of the city since the beginning, the Seaport is an iconic waterfront destination and the community anchor of Lower Manhattan.
“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 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 will welcome the restored Tin Building, a 53,000-square-foot marketplace curated
by Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten.
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 and transforms into The Greens, a year-round rooftop restaurant evolving its dining experience with the seasons. 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.
