Exploring Downtown

The South Street Seaport, a group of rare 18th- and early 19th-century buildings from New York's golden age of shipping, has been strikingly restored and revitalized as a huge marketplace of shops and restaurants created by The Rouse Company. Included within its borders are the English style "counting houses" that make up Fulton Street's Schermerhorn Row, built 1811-12 by a family shipping business on South Street dating from 1728. The South Street Seaport Museum operates galleries and exhibitions, and maintains one of the world's largest fleets of historic ships. The 1911 Peking, a German-built four-masted bark, and the Wavertree, an 1885 iron full-rigged ship, are both open to visitors.
