"Something's fishy here"
While the South Street Seaport no longer emits the same wafting smell of fresh (mostly) fish that it once did, Front Street nevertheless isn't quite the charming historical street it could b, given its location to the Seaport, as well as other historical areas like Wall and Pearl Street. It's an efficient commercial street, with several high-rise office buildings looking out over the water, as well as a couple of hotels. Dining is largely limited to business-friendly takeaways, such as Starbucks and a local sushi joint, although nearby South Street Seaport offers plenty of fine restaurants (if you enjoy seafood, that is). While it's interestingly located and perfectly decent, overall there's little to particularly this area. If you work here - fine - if you don't, there's little reason to come here. But nearby South Street Seaport is nevertheless a highly worthy touristic destination
