The company developing the South Street Seaport, General Growth Properties, teamed up with noted writer and architect James Sanders to create a free public exhibit showing the seaport through the years.
Seaport Past and Future, which opened yesterday, displays models of the seaport at different points in history along with a model of the new development set to break ground in 2010.
The future plans for the seaport include a 495-foot retail, hotel and residential tower, a smaller hotel, relocation of the historic Tin Building to the waterfront and open space throughout.
