    The weather was bad and it's all construction. Zero stars.

    So scenic and adorable. Cute shops. Definitely more of a summer-time spot, but check out the fun winter festivities here also. Makes me feel like I'm in old-time NYC.

    There’s no better way to watch a movie than with the city skyline as the backdrop. Over the summer, New York offers a number of free outdoor film screenings in various locations throughout the city.

    I think they are renovating part of the restaurant area near the deck. Overall very lively with crowd and live band/dance performance.

    A lot of the local venders participate in local savings programs or daily specials. Looks for signage in the stalls to find the latest ways to save money.

    Dedicated to NY's maritime history, South Street Seaport is known for its water taxis and large boats. But stroll down the peer with an ice cream cone to feel like you’re almost on a beach boardwalk.
