This is Front Street?
It had been a while since I'd traveled to the South Street Seaport.
The last trip I can recall was a spontaneous scavenger hunt to find Ryders Alley -- the cobbled strip that author Robert Sullivan staked out for a year to document urban rodent life for his book, "Rats."
A quick Google search finds it's all part of the Historic Front Street Project -- a $43 million redevelopment plan that kicked off a Front Street makeover in ... um ... 2003. Check this site for cool historial information on what these posh spots were in their past lives: CLICK! And check out this Interactive Streetwork Map to zoom in on the details.
So anyway, this Tabloid Tours member may be a little late to the party -- but better late than never. We hit wine bar Bin No.220 for a small birthday party Saturday night and definitely recommend it and there were definitely way more Urbanites than rats trolling around.
So -- prediction time. Front Street the new Bedford Avenue? You tell us.
