Titanic Memorial Park | Fulton and Pearl Street
Located in the Titanic Memorial Park at the corner of Pearl Street and Fulton Street, the Titanic Memorial Lighthouse, part of the collection of the South Street Seaport Museum, stands as a memorial to all those lost during the tragic sinking of the RMS Titanic. Originally erected on the roof of the Seamen’s Church Institute at South Street and Coenties Slip, the tower was donated to the South Street Street Seaport Museum in 1968 and was placed on Pier 16.
In 1976 the lighthouse underwent a partial restoration and was moved to its current location sitting atop a concrete base at the head of the Titanic Memorial Park where it is a beacon welcoming visitors to the South Street Seaport Historic District. Further restoration of the Memorial is planned as part of the Seaport Museum campus masterplan following reopening and reactivating Museum spaces to welcome visitors in a way in which we have not been able to do since prior to 2013.
When in the district, be sure to visit the lighthouse and read the inscription, pay your respects, or sit in the park to enjoy the quiet beauty of Little Water Street in the presence of the memorial.
