Perfect for history lovers, this tour of the historical Basilica of St. Patrick’s Old Cathedral in Lower Manhattan invites you into the catacombs, allowing you to see its pipe organ and venture to parts of the building that are normally closed to visitors. Beat the crowds on this tour and enjoy a personal encounter with this New York landmark.

For the holiday season I strive to visit as many areas of the city as possible and the South Street Seaport is always on my list. I find this area is calming and peaceful being located on the water and charming with the stone streets. It is a short walk from the Fulton Street Stop on the 2 or 3 trains. I was there on a weekend night and was comforted in that there were not too many visitors on that evening. It was easy to maintain social distancing while enjoying the white and ivory Christmas Tree and complementing decorations. The shops tend to be closed by 7 PM but there was a selection of restaurants open for the evening. My favorite part of the visit was wandering across the street to Pier 17 to enjoy the view of the skyline. If you are looking for some quiet time and a great view, this a wonderful spot to check out. I look forward to going back and re-visiting the various restaurants in this location.

Pleasant area for a walk about down at the water. Was quiet when we were there but that could be because of the time of year. Interesting ships, and great view of Brooklyn Bridge

This area has all you want, some great restaurants, shopping, an outdoor bar. Views of the Brooklyn Bridge. An area that you don’t want to miss, also close to Pier 17.

The south street seaport is so different since the devastation of hurricane Sandy. It’s still a beautiful place with gorgeous views. A lot of restaurants, entertainment and concerts. The place is great for photos, several shops and other places to eat. I still miss the old seaport but eventually once they finish building I will get use to the new area. It’s a wonderful place to visit since they have a huge terrace on top but it was closed to the public this time I visit.
