South Street Hotel Renovation

South Street Seaport is moving forward on plans to renovate an 1811 hotel. Called the Fulton Ferry Hotel during the Civil War, the hotel starting as a pretty decent place to stay. It changed over the years into a rundown flophouse, eventually shutting down in the 1930's.

“The intention for the hotel space now is to encapsulate one room as it is now, just to show the dilapidated state we found it in, and then bring some of the rooms back to different time periods,” says Jeff Remling, the museum’s curator.
