The South Street Seaport has been a hotspot of New York City visitors for 27 years, but the facility hasn't been looking so hot - until now.
3 big changes are coming to the Seaport's 90,000 sqaure-foot complex:
1. Windows, lots of them! The Seaport looks like a barn right now, and that will be replaced with 3 levels of floor to ceiling windows, offering sweeping views of the East River.
2. A rooftop park. Looks to be the East Side's version of the popular High Line.
3. New, high-end tenants. While tourists have frequented the souvenier and T-shirt shops, the venue's top retailers - JCrew, Victoria's Secret and Express - have performed quite well and similar stores are coming soon.
