South Street Seaport
We'll be ending our 9-11 memorial visit, then wanna head to South Street Seaport for food
First off, whats the best way to travel to South Street Seaport ?
Secondly, what's the best way to arrive there ?
I was told to ride the Downtown connection to arrive at the South Street Seaport from 9/11 Memorial site....is that true info?
It's called The South Street Seaport and it has few options; it's basically a mall/food court. Total tourist circus..
See these threads, uncovered by searching for "South Street":
This site is only for food, btw. Try hopstop.com for subway directions.
"I was told Downtown connection to arrive SS from 9-11 memoria, is that correct?"
I have no idea what that means.Try the 9-11 Memorial's website for entry instructions and actually, it appears to have subway information too:

I typed in "downtown connection" into Google and found this as the very first result:
I would advise you to find somewhere to eat near the Memorial and not go to South Street Seaport, which is a tourist trap, as thegforceny mentions.
Near the 9-11 Memorial are Shake Shack, North End Grill, Blue Smoke, etc.
I'm not quite sure what you mean when you say downtown connection -- do you mean how to get to the seaport *from* the 9/11 Memorial? If that's the case, just walk down Broadway and head east, Fulton St. will probably be easiest, and you can buy an I *love8 NY t-shirt while you're there. :) It's actually a relatively short distance.
To get downtown from uptown, it's probably easiest to take take the 4 or 6 subway line to City Hall/Brooklyn Bridge to get to 9/11 first. Just walk (heading west) around the park to WTC, it's maybe a couple of blocks.
If you're coming directly from the airport (via Brooklyn), the 1 will be easiest. I hope this doesn't confuse you.
As for food, sorry! lol I know there are a few wharf restaurants that would be an obvious choice, but there's a cluster of nice looking restaurants w/ outdoor seating in the area as you're walking away from the wharf. I've never been to any of them but they always look lively, esp. around happy hour.
