New Yorkers who want to discover and enjoy new music, art, and performances know they can find all of it at the South Street Seaport. From the River to River Festival and Spiegeltent to the Moth Storyshop and Children’s Day, the Seaport has become as well known for its exciting cultural offerings as it once was for the Fulton Fish Market.

Over the past 10 years, the Seaport has played host to concerts by the Brooklyn Philharmonic and Pink, the Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks, and walks for a variety of local causes. Hundreds of thousands have come downtown for these and other signature events, and their popularity has helped make the Seaport one of the city’s premier venues.

The Seaport’s summer 2008 season kicked off with “Amazonia Brasil,” an expansive cultural and educational exhibit that recreates the Amazonian rainforest on Pier 17 and teaches visitors about ecology and sustainability in South America. It continues with free outdoor concerts on Pier 17 by the Brooklyn Philharmonic, returning for its second season, and the Seaport Music Festival, now in its seventh season.

In July, Pier 17 will serve as one of the prime viewing points for Olafur Eliasson's highly anticipated public art installation, The New York City Waterfalls. GGP has partnered with the Public Art Fund to support this temporary exhibit, which will be installed in multiple locations in New York Harbor, including beneath the Brooklyn Bridge.

During the four-year construction period at Pier 17, GGP will continue to collaborate with cultural organizations to host new events at the Seaport and to bring back local favorites. While the pier is under redevelopment, the historic cobblestone district will remain an anchor for the River to River Festival and the annual Children’s Day, as well as many other year-round events that offer something for all ages.
