"More than just the Seaport"

Home of the famous "South Street Seaport," with which South Street is inexorably linked, this small street on the southeastern boundaries of Manhattan is home to one of New York's most delightful historic sights. While, tragically, much of the seaport - particularly the old Fulton Fish Market - has been transformed into a rather one-note, if well-designed, shopping mall, the historic character of the seaport remains, and is worth a visit by tourists and locals alike. Nineteenth-century (and earlier) ships still bob in the harbor, while the mercantile buildings along the seaport itself are a rare unsullied reminder of another age. The deck views of the East River are also stunning, and well worth a picnic in warmer weather. The area's a tourism and commerce centre rather than a residential one, however, and if the crowds of tourists showing up don't deter you from setting up full-time shop here, the pungent smell of fish (though diminished since the market's closure) may well do so. Even locals, however, might want to head down here in the summer, where the art nouveau Spiegeltent, a seasonal circus-tent music venue, plays host to such in-style acts as Vienna Teng and Duncan Sheik. Head to some of the restaurants in the area for top-quality Atlantic seafood. Try The River Cafe or Bridge Cafe.

"Small boring industrial street."

There is absolutely nothing to do on this street and no real reason to go down it unless you work in the shipping industry. It is a very dirty street and there are no attractions here at all. It is pretty much just a street that connects 25th and 24th streets on the eastern end.
