Nelson Blue

New Zealand is one of the most beautiful and unique places on Earth. Its two small islands showcase a startling diversity of geography, plants, and animals, and the mix of human cultures creates a country like no other! Add a little kiwi to your day with a meal at Nelson Blue! Catch all the fun at 233-235 Front Street @ Peck Slip, South Street Seaport.

Nelson Blue 3

A New Zealander in New York

This cozy and creative restaurant came from the mind and background of owner Pauli Morgan. He named this gastropub in honor of his hometown in New Zealand, and his love of his native country shows through in the restaurant’s Maori-inspired decor. It’s a feast for the eyes as well as the stomach, with columns carved to resemble traditional Maori war canoes and a curved wooden bar.

Nelson Blue 1

The menu features both small plates, which are perfect for a snack or for diners who’d like to try many foods; and large plates which dish up much heftier servings. Try a plate of the corn and zucchini fritters for a mouth-watering starter, or for the carnivores, beef sliders with caramelized onion. Sandwich lovers won’t want to miss the fried egg club sandwich, piled high with bacon, lettuce, egg, and curried mayonnaise! The D.U.B. pies bring a New Zealand tradition to the South Seaport.

Anne Frank Center

In the decades since World War II, the story of Anne Frank has educated and inspired millions of people. Though she was only fifteen years old when she died, her short life served as an example of courage and hope, and has connected modern people with the lives of those who endured some of the most difficult years humanity has known. Learn more about a common girl’s uncommon lifetime at the Anne Frank Center! You can find it at 44 Park Place.

Anne Frank Center 1

Anne Frank’s story is one of the most powerful testaments to the events in World War II. It provides a visceral, human connection to the terrible injustices perpetrated by the Nazi party. Her simple writings about her existence, and her years in hiding as she and her family evaded capture, put a face on the people of the era we can all relate to.

History on Display

The Anne Frank Center proudly presents a gallery which uses Anne Frank’s writings, as well as pictures and interactive displays, to draw visitors into the young woman’s world. They even have life-sized photographs of the bedroom in which she wrote her diary, to give visitors a truly engaging experience. Also on display are other artifacts of the Holocaust, to add detail to the events Anne Frank wrote about. Throughout the year, the Anne Frank Center hosts temporary exhibits from artists across the globe which explore related themes.

Anne Frank Center 2

Tertulia

The culture surrounding many of Spain’s regions, most especially Asturias on the Atlantic coast, encourages meals shared with good friends over conversation and laughter. You can find a local taste of this companionable style, not to mention delicious cuisine, at Tertulia, on 6th Avenue!

Tertulia 3

Compliments to the Chef

Chef Seamus Mullen discovered the charming food of the Asturias region while working in some of Spain’s best kitchens. On his return to the United States, he opened the Boqueria tapas bar, and then ambitiously moved forward with his career as a finalist on Food Network’s exciting series, “The Next Iron Chef”!

The award-winning chef brings his passion for Spanish food to everything he cooks at Tertulia. The restaurant itself takes its theme from the word used to describe gatherings of friends which feature excellent food and drink. Dishes here are meant to be shared among those at the table, passed around and enjoyed by all.

Tertulia 2

Meals Worth Sharing

You’ll find hard cider on tap, as well as an array of wines to accompany your meal. Fresh ingredients combine to create deceptively simple dishes which will leave an impression long after you’ve cleaned the plate. Succulent seafood, including grilled clams and seared fish from the daily markets, join crispy snail rice, and grilled lamb breast on a menu which combines traditional foods with a modern flair. Enjoy Chef Mullen’s spectacular creations for brunch, lunch, or dinner!

Seastreak’s deluxe seating, both inside the cabin and outside on the deck, is the perfect way to get to and from a delicious dinner at Tertulia. Continue the laughter and conversation on one of our catamarans as you travel. We welcome your bags of leftovers aboard, too!

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

You may have seen Neil Patrick Harris in the popular television show “How I Met Your Mother”, or the cult favorite “Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along”. Now, you can see him in a role like no other, as he performs in a limited engagement of Hedwig and the Angry Inch on Broadway! There’s less than a month to catch this over-the-top performance at the Belasco Theater, before Neil Patrick Harris takes his final bow and another actor takes his place.

Hedwig and the Angry Inch

A Glamorous Show

Tony and Emmy Award winner Neil Patrick Harris brings his outrageous style and pitch-perfect showmanship to the story of Hedwig, a transvestite singer who has fled East Berlin for the United States. In the wake of a heartbreak, she forms her band, the Angry Inch, and befriends a teen-aged singer named Tommy. As Tommy rockets to stardom, internationally ignored Hedwig must cope with living in the shadow of the star she helped create.

After August 17, Harris will leave the production. The part of Hedwig will be played by Andrew Rannells, who was nominated for his work in “The Book of Mormon”. He’s sure to shine in the role, as he previously took on the part in a production in Austin. If you’re a Neil Patrick Harris fan, however, you’ll want to be sure to grab tickets before he steps down.

Award-Winning Revival

Hedwig and the Angry Inch has garnered stellar reviews. It won four Tony awards, including Best Revival of a Musical, Best Actor in a Leading Role, and Best Actress in a Featured Role.

Seastreak’s schedules and punctual service provide you with the best option for your trip to and from Manhattan when you go to watch a show on Broadway. Our comfortable seats, either inside the craft or on the deck, are fabulous places to talk about the show with your friends!

Ushiwakamaru

Sushi is nearly ubiquitous in the city, from traditionally prepared rolls and sashimi platters to truly different creations which could only come to life in New York. In this sea of sushi restaurants, a few notable establishments stand out as excellent examples. Ushiwakamaru, at 136 W. Houston Street, offers delicious and fresh Japanese food, with both old favorites and uncommon treats on the menu.

ushiwakamaru 1

A Cut Above

Ushiwakamaru has a menu packed with traditional sushi delicacies, as well as soups, salads, and entrees which resonate with the cuisine’s Japanese roots. All the food from this restaurant’s kitchens has unbeatable taste, like the light and flavorful tempura, but the sushi is where the establishment shines.

Diners with groups, or who prefer a bit of solitude while they eat, can order their meal from one of the restaurant’s tables. The best seats in the house, though, are at the sushi bar, where you can engage with the chefs while watching them prepare your meal. When you ask for Ushiwakamaru’s omakase, however, you won’t want to sit anywhere else.

ushiwakamaru 2

Chef’s Choice

For those who aren’t connoisseurs of the sushi scene, the term “omakase” comes from the Japanese word for “to trust”. It means, in general, “I’ll leave it to you,” and it’s one of the best ways to enjoy sushi. The chef will choose his favorite dishes for the day and prepare them especially for you.

Many sushi patrons consider this a form of art. It’s a phenomenal way to try new selections you might never have thought to order, and to get the best of the day’s ingredients served in the most delicious way.

Sound tempting? Why not make your trip to Ushiwakamaru truly fintastic with a ride aboard our amazing ferry? You can trust Seastreak to provide the most comfortable ride to and from Manhattan. If you just can’t resist bringing some sushi home from Ushiwakamaru, don’t worry. We’ll gladly welcome you, and your take-out treats, on board our catamaran!

Merchant’s House Museum

Get a Glimpse of New York’s Past at the Merchant’s House Museum

Life has changed dramatically in the past 100 years. Where today’s New York City is a sprawling, bustling metropolis filled with modern wonders, the area looked far different just a short century ago. See how New Yorkers lived in the early part of the 1900s at the Merchant’s House Museum! You’ll find it at 29 E. 4th Street.

Merchants House Museum

Living History

Merchant’s House Museum, once called the Seabury Tredwell house, is the only family home of its era preserved intact in New York City. At the time of its purchase by a wealthy hardware merchant, the neighborhood was a quiet and very exclusive suburb. For more than 100 years, as the neighborhood around the home changed, the large Tredwell family both lived and died in this home. The last of the Tredwells died in 1933, and three years after, the home opened as a museum. It is now part of the Historic House Trust of New York City.

A visit to the Merchant’s House Museum immerses you in the lifestyle of the wealthy merchant class at the turn of the century. The museum holds over 3,000 items preserved from the Tredwell family, which include furniture, clothing, photographs, books, and more. Just as fascinating as what the museum holds is the building itself, which is considered one of the best surviving examples of Greek Revival architecture.

Merchants House 2

A Visit to the Past

Both guided tours and self-guided tours are available. While the guided tour will take about 45 minutes, the self-guided walk often takes people between 30 and 90 minutes. Be certain to check the museum’s hours of availability before you plan your visit.

Seastreak’s luxurious catamarans are a modern wonder you can take advantage of every day. With both indoor and outdoor seating, a full-service bar, and friendly customer service, they’re the best way to get to and from Manhattan.

Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum

Three years ago this month, the final space shuttle blasted off from Kennedy Space Center, and landed there again nearly two weeks later. Experience the beginnings of the history-making space shuttle program, and learn more about the incredible engineering which went into our nation’s space program, at the Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum! It’s at Pier 86, 12th Avenue, in Midtown West!

Intrepid Sea Air and Space Museum

Featuring the famous aircraft carrier Intrepid, this unusual museum has some of the most exciting exhibits you can find in New York. Walk the carrier’s flight deck, where you can find almost two dozen planes, including the infamous A-12 Blackbird. See the hangar deck, and the third deck, where you can learn more about how enlisted men and women live.

A12 Blackbird

The Intrepid museum also displays the Growler strategic missile submarine, as well as one of the British Airways Concorde planes. By far, however, the most ambitious exhibit offered is the space shuttle Enterprise. This engineering marvel was the prototype orbiter which helped usher in a new era of spaceflight.

Space Shuttle Enterprise

Visitors can hear actual conversations between the shuttle’s crew and mission control, and walk directly underneath the Enterprise for a one-of-a-kind view. Compare the space shuttle with a Soyuz space capsule, and learn more about the differences between the two programs. Be part of the immersive experience with films, audio, and pictures you won’t see anywhere else.

Families have an amazing opportunity on August 9 and September 27! The museum has special “Operation Slumber” evenings planned, where groups can sleep underneath the space shuttle! Contact the museum for more information.

Take your own journey into New York in style on a Seastreak ferry! Our comfortable, modern boats won’t take you to the stars, but they will get you where you need to go with customer service you’ll love and punctuality you can trust.

Sea you soon!

Accomplice The Show

There’s a mystery afoot in New York. Your phone rings, and an unfamiliar voice tells you where the adventure begins.  Only you and your party can decipher the clues and solve puzzles which hide across neighborhoods and businesses in the city. At Accomplice The Show, you’re both the star and the audience in an experience like no other!

Accomplice: The Show

Accomplice has intriguing adventures for ten in both Downtown New York City, and in Greenwich Village. These excursions have elements of scavenger hunts, cafe crawls, city tours, and theater performances, as participants are guided around in an interactive story. In a city full of colorful characters, you’ll wonder if the people you see as you follow the trail of clues are part of the production, or just bystanders unaware of your mission.

The Accomplice experience lasts about three hours. Groups of 10 or 11 start up about every half hour. You and a group of friends or family can all buy tickets to go as a group, but you don’t need to gather up your own party to participate. Buy one ticket and join up with other sleuths for a unique hunt.

Accomplice: The Show 2

Book your tickets in advance of the day you’d like to attend! You’ll get a call the day before telling you where your mystery tour starts. If you’d prefer, the Accomplice team will gladly e-mail you the information instead. Children between 10 and 15 years of age should be accompanied by guardians, but are welcome in the show. Light rain won’t cancel a show, but severely inclement weather will. In case of a rain out, you’ll be offered the chance to reschedule, or receive a refund.

There’s no mystery to solve when you’re looking for the best way to get to and from Manhattan. Seastreak ferries offer you a straightforward, luxurious ride and terrific customer service.

Sea you soon!
