The Seaport and Pier 17 have a rich and diverse history as profound to New York City as Wall Street, Central Park or Times Square. This cultural marketplace along the dynamic Lower Manhattan waterfront is a gateway to the harbor. The neighborhood offers attractions, shops and restaurants for every taste. Diverse year-round events are easily accessible by subway, car, ferry or bus. Concerts, street performers, boating, bike rentals, a farmers market, summer beach and winter celebrations abound.
