LOMA LAUNCHES CAMPAIGN TO ATTRACT VISITORS BACK TO THE SANDY-DEVASTATED SEAPORT

A full moon, a high tide, a storm surge. Eight angry feet of water swamped the historic Seaport. Miraculously (with a large dollop of Can Do attitude), many businesses have sluiced down, stripped out and rebuilt their operations. And they want people to know THE SEAPORT IS OPEN!

We are mounting a campaign:

  • Map posters on the East River Ferry service
  • Banners 10 feet by 4 feet at the commuter ferry terminal at the World Financial Center
  • Map posters at the Statue Cruises ticket desk
  • Buoy posters at the head of pedestrianized Fulton Street and at South Street
  • 10,000 (as a first run) New York TAB Concierge maps with a blow-up of the neighborhood and its open businesses. These will be distributed at J&R (at the top of the Fulton Street corridor), on NYWater Taxi ferries, at visitor centers and hotels throughout the City.

Many New York residents either don't realize the extent of the damage done to the neighborhood, or DO know and don't want to "intrude" on an area so badly hurt.

We are here to tell you we're not sunk and the open businesses want the public's support and will welcome their custom.

WHAT'S OPEN:

  • Hampton Inn
  • Best Western Seaport Inn
  • Mark Joseph Steakhouse
  • Acqua restaurant
  • Cowgirl Seahorse restaurant
  • Jeremy's Alehouse
  • Bowne & Co. stationery and gifts
  • Bowne Printers
  • Made Fresh Daily bakery and sandwich shop
  • South Street Seaport Museum
  • Pier 17 Seaport mall
  • New York Watertaxi tours and cruises
  • Pasanella & Son wines and spirits
  • Fishmarket bar
  • Fresh Salt bar and restaurant
  • Fetch dog care, entertainment and accessories

Please see the poster attachment. For further information please contact LOMA Chairman Clive Burrow at cburrow@nytab.com

LOMA members come together to network, discuss business opportunities and support each other's work in one of Manhattan's most dynamic neighborhoods. Composed of real New York neighborhoods like Tribeca, world-class business districts like Wall Street and tourists Mecca's like the South Street Seaport, Lower Manhattan presents visitors and residents alike with one of New York's best neighborhood experiences.

LOMA is dedicated to promoting the economic development of Lower Manhattan through marketing of the neighborhood as a premier New York City destination for tourists as well as New Yorkers. Having emerged from the challenges of the past decade with a boom in construction, and an influx of new residents and businesses, a presence in Lower Manhattan is increasingly necessary for businesses operating in New York City.
