To the editor,
South Street Seaport Museum is a landmark historical treasure. It offers a real, physical presence of old moored ships, period shops, and a large museum filled with relics of ancient seaport activities and history located whose housing is the museum’s early nineteenth century buildings.
NYC is now determining how to spend its cultural development budget for 2017 which should include the museum to help with critical restoration of the disabling damage that hurricane Sandy did to restore it to its rightful, full operating condition.
Now is the time for the city planners and leaders to embrace and
support our last visible historical seaport symbolic site (a tourist must) of the seafaring activities that originally made our city great.
