Seaport North is one of the oldest neighborhoods in the City with roots going back to the mid-18th century. The neighborhood looks much like it did 200 years ago and it has retained the feel of a working waterfront community with the amenities of the finest residential neighborhood. The 24/7 community has vibrant retail and restaurant activity on the ground floors, with access to a new public space on Peck Slip and direct access to the waterfront, East River cultural and recreational facilities and parks.
