South Street Seaport to be Redesigned

The South Street Seaport hasn't been the same since the Fulton Fish Market moved away from Fulton street, but we've heard some cool new plans for the areas new life as a tourist destination: The New York Post is reporting that a redesigned Pier 17 at the historic South Street Seaport will feature a glass shopping mall and larger open spaces.

"The re-envisioned Seaport transforms the pier's iconic waterfront setting into an energetic, highly engaging destination for shopping, dining and entertainment in lower Manhattan," David Weinreb, CEO of developer Howard Hughes, said in a statement.

Construction will start next year and is expected to be completed by 2015. The South Street Seaport district comprises an existing mall at the pier as well as historic buildings and sailing ships.
