about our neighborhood

The Peck Slip School is located in the Historic South Street Seaport in Downtown Manhattan, right at the base of the Brooklyn Bridge. The South Street Seaport District features some of the oldest architecture in downtown Manhattan, and includes the largest concentration of restored early 19th-century commercial buildings in New York City.

Peck Slip itself was the site of the very first ferry service in the city, operated by Cornelius Dirckson with a small canoe.  The ferry ride cost 3 beads of wampum in 1630.  On the front of the Peck Slip school building, there is a beautiful piece of artwork by artist Duke Riley depicting this wonderful piece of history.

The Peck Slip School’s amazing historic location gives students the perfect backdrop for their studies of the Brooklyn Bridge, the Subway, and all things New York City.
