The South Street Seaport is rarely high on the visitor checklist, but worth a look if you're heading down to Wall St etc. Head over for a drink and a wander, nice views of the harbour and some lovely little spots for lunch/dinner. Check out the great old paper shop too (Bowne & Co)! South St Seaport and Stone St (check out Adrienne's Pizza) are the best dining options in the financial district.

The area is a busy area full of tall buildings,etc. but so many places to go get fresh seafood. Also, places to eat. Nice in the evening if you want to hang out as a couple or with friends and family. Parking is crazy, but they have a few parking lots for a "not so low" price if you don't mind.

I love the penguin area here. don't miss it. The inside aquarium is really nice too, where you walk through and all the fish are around you. Great photo opportunities.
