The Seaport Community Coalition works to bring a unified voice and channel for action to quality of life issues that impact the South Street Seaport Historic District community. The Coalition spearheads efforts regarding waterfront usage, environmental protection, historic preservation, commercial and residential development, sanitation and health, parks and recreation and crime prevention.



The South Street Seaport Historic

District's founders left New Yorkers a glorious legacy.


The challenge today is to fulfill their vision by animating those buildings, streets and piers with uses that are true to the District's character, while serving the needs of the residents, area workers, and visitors of today and tomorrow.
