The Howard Hughes Corp. refuses to use “historic” when referring to the name of our Seaport District seeking to bury South Street’s contribution to the American Story under its development plans. HHC’s aim is to marginalize hundreds of years of American history disregarding the South Street Seaport’s major contribution to the founding of the United States in order to promote it’s “new vision” for the South Street Seaport.
For all of us who care, it is and always will be the SOUTH STREET SEAPORT HISTORIC DISTRICT
Howard Hughes Corp. is attempting to re-brand South Street Seaport as: Seaport District NYC
And if the city cedes control to HHC our Seaport will become: Howard Hughes Corporate District
FOR NEW YORKERS WHO CARE ABOUT PRESERVING OUR HISTORY THIS ATTEMPT TO RE-BRAND THE SEAPORT SAYS IT ALL ABOUT HOW THE HUGHES’ CORPORATION VIEWS A NATIONAL TREASURE
