South Street Seaport

Come discover the treasures of the South Street Seaport District with the South Street Seaport Museum’s historian William Roka on this special guided tour. Home to some of the oldest standing structures in Manhattan, from a former rat pit to a warehouse built by one of the most famous 19th-century American architects, the buildings of the Seaport have a big story to tell: the rise of New York.
