The recently revitalized Seaport District, located a few steps East of the Financial District, is not only Financial District’s hidden gem, it’s also a trendy up and coming hangout spot for many New Yorkers during those lovely summer days.
The Seaport District itself boasts a wide variety of amenities, stores and restaurants such as The Fulton restaurant — a delicious culinary experience brought by the infamous Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten, known to many as the real visionary of French cuisine and as a three Michelin star holder. The Seaport District Garden Bar is also a great go-to to watch televised events on the Chase Sapphire Television section, or to simply enjoy an after-work drink with your colleagues or friends. Restaurants like By Chloe and 10 Corso Como Cafe make the Seaport District a delightful place to have so near to the Financial District as you literally have the world at your finger tips!
Feel like soaking in the beautiful pier sights of Dumbo and the Brooklyn Bridge? You have access to the Pier 17 Rooftop or the Pier 17 walkways that are open until late and offer some truly breathtaking sights of Brooklyn and the New York Bridges. You’ll also be in immediate walking distance to the NYC Ferry boats which are a great method of transportation if you’re looking to skip the subway rush hours.
It’s no surprise that the Seaport District and Pier 17 are the hidden gem of the Financial District, especially since you have access to an almost 360 degree view of some of New York’s most beautiful landmarks, like the previously mentioned Dumbo and Brooklyn Bridge, you also have a southern facing view of Governors Island, the State of Liberty, the beautiful high-rise luxury rentals of Financial District and on the northern facing front, you’ll get to view the Empire State Building and some other special landmarks.
The best part? If you’re exhausted by the time you’ve soaked up all these breathtaking sights and are relaxed from being near the water, you’ll be in walking distance to the incredible and high quality iPic theater, where you can catch a viewing of any upcoming movie!
