Friday, October 6: History of South Street Seaport’s Architecture


Come explore the hidden history of South Street Seaport’s architecture at the South Street Seaport Museum. Called “Architecture of Trade: Schermerhorn Row and the Seaport,” the building tour will guide participants through Schermerhorn Row, one of the oldest warehouses in New York City, which is also the home of the Seaport Museum.

The tour goes up three floors that are usually closed off to the public to view selected artifacts from the museum’s private collection; there will also be a walkthrough of the hidden hotels and saloon rooms that were made famous by New Yorker writer Joseph Mitchell in his story “Up in the Old Hotel.” There will also be an exclusive guided tour to the fourth floor as well.

The tour starts at 12 pm, and tickets are $15. For more information, visit the website here.
