Last weekend I had back-to-back Feng Shui and Reiki healing sessions throughout New York City.
During my lunch break, I decided to visit the historic South Street Seaport, located adjacent to the financial district in lower Manhattan. This was a wonderful visit as it was bustling with outdoor shoppers and dining, and even lounge chairs located at the end of the pier where you could just lay back to take in the views and pause for a moment.
While exploring the South Steet Seaport I came across a free tour of the Wavertree 1885 ship. The tour provided some basic facts about the Wavertree ship and in all, this ship has been through a lot, shipping cargo all around the world in all kinds of weather. The fact that it's still standing is pretty impressive and the tour shared the entire ship is going through a restoration process. After learning a bit about the Wavertree, I'll say this, I would not have wanted to be a sailor during those times, no thank you.

If you would like to learn more about the South Sea Seaport in NYC you could visit the South Street Seaport Museum on Fulton Street at Pier 16.
For those who wish to stroll or ride their bike along the East River Esplanade Park located by the South Street Seaport, it has a wonderful view of the Brooklyn Bridge.
To get to the South Steet Seaport you could hail a taxi, or save by riding the subway. Subways 2,3,4,5, A, C, J, or Z trains to Fulton Street. For those who are coming from Brooklyn and looking for a unique way to travel to the South Street Seaport, you could walk/ride your bike across the Brooklyn Bridge or hop on a Water Ferry.
As you can see there is a ton to do and this is just a taste. Happy exploring!
