Our visit to South Street Seaport

Updated: Jan 28

Yesterday, my family and I finally visited South Street Seaport at the southern tip of Manhattan, New York City! I had been there years ago, but that was before I knew that my great-grandfather, Percy H. Daniels, sailed to and from there frequently and lived across the street when he was in port.

Percy used the address "27 South Street, New York" on several records I've found between 1907 and 1920. The building is no longer there, however, the historic South Street Seaport is!

This is the view of the East River, along the banks of which the docks were built, from One World Trade Center Observation Tower. The skyscrapers are obstructing our view of the piers, but they are to the right of the Brooklyn Bridge in this photo:
