South Street Seaport Museum tells the story of how New York’s great natural harbor gave rise to the metropolis we know today. From Lenape villages, to the early Dutch settlements, to the colonial town of New Amsterdam, to the growing city of New York, the story of this land through time is the story of the waterfront.
