Through my eyes: South Street Seaport, New York, USA

We’re almost at the end of NYC week! Hope you’ve all enjoyed my little virtual tour and maybe found a few new things to add to the bucket list, or things to re-visit – I don’t think you could ever have too many visits to New York 🙂

Before we finished off tomorrow, I wanted to add in a quick little snapshot of a place that generally isn’t high up on many visitors’ lists: the South Street Seaport.

The South Street Seaport is down the south end (duh) of Manhattan, wedged between the Financial District to the north and west, and the East River to the southeast. It was used as a port back in the 1600s by the Dutch West India Company, and today greets visitors as a historic site and museum, with beautiful views out over the water, and of the Manhattan and Brooklyn Bridges.

It’s a really lovely place to walk down to and just sit and watch from, especially if you get a clear day with a bit of sunshine. It’s well worth the visit, even if you’re not interested in the history – sitting out on the pier and taking a New York Minute to just appreciate where you are and reminisce about all the amazing things you’ve just seen and done is always a good idea, especially towards the end of your trip, actual or virtual 🙂
