Mast and main from a ship at South Street Seaport, N.Y.

The South Street Seaport (or South Street Seaport Historic District) is a historical area located in lower Manhattan, New York City. The seaport is situated where Fulton Street meets the East River, and adjacent to the Financial District. It features some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan and includes the largest concentration of restored early 19th-century commercial buildings in the city. The seaport also includes mercantile buildings and sailing ships from the early colonial period, as well as retail and commercial sites such as the former Fulton Fish Market and the Pier 17 shopping mall.

Great shot! I love the old sailing vessels. We suggested a trip to a maritime museum on the Chesapeake to our grandsons, but are car guys.
