The New, New South Street Seaport

On March 20, Crain’s New York reported that plans to to demolish the existing mall that exists at Pier 17 in the South Street Seaport and build a different mall were approved by New York’s City Council.

There is nothing even remotely interesting about the South Street Seaport. I would guess that the last time it was genuinely interesting was when it was an actual seaport. It was somewhat interesting when the fish market still operated there. When they were driven out, there was nothing left but the mall and an endless parade of charter busses.

It’s not a bad place to ride by on my bike…
