It’s Time to Set Sail For…

How about we take a trip into the past for a little bit? I’ll promise you’ll enjoy it. South Street Seaport is a historic area in New York City. It is located where Fulton Street meets the East River, and adjacent to the Financial District. The Seaport is a designated historic district, distinct from the neighboring Financial District. It features some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan, and includes the largest concentration of restored early 19th-century commercial buildings in the city. This includes renovated original mercantile buildings, restored sailing ships, the former Fulton Fish Market, and modern tourist malls featuring food, shopping and nightlife, with a view of the Brooklyn Bridge. At the entrance to the Seaport is the Titanic Memorial lighthouse. (Wikipedia.com)

Due to the Hurricane Sandy which has caused some destruction to the Seaport the community has been working hard to rebuild the booming boutique and food and music culture which it was. Here we have the spring revival festival that was held to reboot the area and bring back the fun that once was constantly here and soon to be back. We’ll show the bell ringing ceremony, and just how much this area means to people, and how nice it is to have a festival here to usher in the spring time.

The Spring Revival Festival was held Saturday, April 26th 2014 on pier 16. The festival featured Historic Ship tours, Lightship Ambrose, Wood Carving, Local Food, Vendors, Live Printing Demonstrations, Live Music, and much much more. This event has passed but there are plenty of more events happening at the port! You can see events on their website  here.

Want something a little bit more lowkey and not by the sea exactly? Well c’mon we’re going to Hoboken..
