Detailed Tour Itinerary
Drive By South Street Seaport
Start your tour at Pier 16 at the South Street Seaport in Downtown Manhattan.

In the 1960s, the South Street Seaport Museum was founded, and even today, preservation and development exist side by side.

Built during the American Great Depression in 1930, this astounding building has 102 floors and 6,500 windows, and is considered one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World by the American Society of Civil Engineers. Ever since its inception, the Empire State Building has been capturing the fascination and imagination of visitors from around the world with its daring, ingenuity, and genuinely American stance towards architecture.
