South Street Seaport Museum

12 Fulton Street
New York

The museum is tiny, housed in Schermerhorn Row. It’s good for my research purpose but not sure the “been here” stamp crowds will enjoy it as much. I took the Archtober tour which I highly recommend, is awesome: load of information and very engaging. Walked hearty 5.1 miles.
