Default South Street Seaport

The weather is warm now, just curious has anybody been there? Is Sandy still affecting the area?

A lot of the businesses are still out, but people still go. A park-like pier opened up just south of the seaport. The smorgasborg food trucks are sometimes there on weekdays. Pretty much none of the businesses on the cobblestone side streets have opened back up yet.

They've got a number of shipping containers that they selling food and drinks out of. Although the drinks are very overpriced, it's a pleasant atmosphere.

It is SUCH a bore. Like Times Square on the water...without theater.

Most of those places weren't good anyway. I remember going there for lunch/brunch if you will one weekend years ago. Went to one of the seafood places and the food was so subpar that we left early and had to eat elsewhere. That area in particular seems to be a tourist trap.

Did the Heartland Brewery location open yet? As much as I avoid chain breweries, I like that particular one, especially the awesome fried pickles they have.

Yeah. I'm really getting to know that part of Manhattan since I'm working in the financial district for the summer. I see a lot of places around South and Beekman Streets just closed and the vibe is quite dead. The piers get a lot of tourists when the weather is sunny, and I always find it funny when more formally dressed people such as myself wander around the pier during our lunchbreaks, side-by-side with your stereotypical American (and less frequently not American) tourist.

The views of Brooklyn and the East River are nice, but they get dull after a while. Pier 17 does have a pretty good food court inside, which is nice when I don't feel like eating from a stand or spending money in one of the district's many overpriced restaurants.

I really miss the Latin American restaurant "Salud" but that's it. Overall, I find Seaport Village to be highly overrated.

Front st was the nicest street around there. Pretty much everything is still closed on it.

I was in NYU Langone last week.
The basement kitchens that were flooded by Sandy are STILL out of commission and food has to be carted in...imagine McDonald's with all the taste removed.


So Sandy's repercussions are still with us with diverse consequences.
