The Seaport and Pier 17 have a rich and diverse history as profound to New York City as Wall Street, Central Park or Times Square. This cultural marketplace along the dynamic Lower Manhattan waterfront is a gateway to the harbor. The neighborhood offers attractions, shops and restaurants for every taste. Diverse year-round events are easily accessible by subway, car, ferry or bus. Concerts, street performers, boating, bike rentals, a farmers market, summer beach and winter celebrations abound.
The first 26 floors are comprised of luxury offices, providing world class services to Trump Tower’s commercial tenants. Accessible through a private entrance on 56th street, the residential condominiums comprise floors 30 through 68 and are considered one of the world’s elite luxury residences, catering to public figures, athletes, celebrities and other affluent sophisticates. A magnificent waterfall runs through the Atrium of Trump Tower further enhancing its beauty, with Trump Bar and Trump Grille on its entrance and lower level. To complement the refined tastes of our residents, the stunning new Gucci flagship store occupies the 5th avenue corner of the building.
Rising 68 stories above 5th Avenue between East 56th and East 57th streets, Trump Tower is one of New York’s most visited attractions since its completion in 1983. Originally the tallest all-glass structure in Manhattan, Trump Tower is still one of the most distinctive buildings in the world, in one of New York City’s most prime locations, offering unobstructed views of Central Park and midtown Manhattan.
The Winter Garden Shops and Restaurants. Over 40 restaurants, brand name retailers and specialty shops. The World Financial Center, ideally situated on the Hudson River waterfront in Lower Manhattan, with its grand centerpiece, the 10-story glass pavilion Winter Garden, features a stunning outdoor waterfront esplanade.
The Manhattan Mall, one of the few traditional indoor malls in New York City, is located at 33rd Street and Sixth Avenue. There are entrances to the 34th Street-Herald Square subway station and the 33rd Street PATH station on the second basement level.
The mall is located in the high-rise building formerly used by the Gimbels flagship store, which closed in 1986. On April 18, 2007, JCPenney announced that it would open a 150,000 square foot store at the mall, its first in Manhattan. As a result, retailers and the food court on the second underground level have been closed to make way for their new store. Source
