Pier 17 in the South Street Seaport reopened on Dec. 6 at 10 a.m. after having been closed for four and a half weeks. A preliminary report from the engineering firm engaged by The Howard Hughes Corporation, which has a long-term lease on the pier, indicated that there was no visible damage from Superstorm Sandy. Based on the A.S.C.E. Standard Inspection Manual, Pier 17 received an “A” rating from the inspectors.

Though Pier 17 and the Pier 17 building have reopened, the Link Building and Historic Cobblestone Uplands remain closed indefinitely for remediation.

Shoppers should be aware that Verizon and U.P.S. are currently not servicing the South Street Seaport area.

Seaport Management is encouraging Pier 17 merchants to offer 10 percent discounts on select merchandise through Dec. 31.

Pier 17 at the end of Fulton St. is now open daily through the end of December. The hours are 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
