South Street Seaport

IMG_8545 copyIt was the Fulton Fish Market and largely ignored and shunned until it was renovated. The actual fish market and its pungent smells have moved away. Shops, stores, restaurants, and a wooden deck made the area inviting for tourists. It’s still nice but foot traffic is less and the area is still trying to invent itself. There are a few ships to tour. And there are events held. It’s just not a hub of cultural activity. I passed by a few days ago and noticed the whole of the boardwalk is being torn up. It seems that the wood does not last too long in the water when exposed to the sea life.
