LOWER MANHATTAN — Every New York City neighborhood has its own favorite corner store or bodega. South Street Seaport is no different.

Phillipe Boujna has lived in South Street Seaport for 20 years. He said the area lacked a little shop, so he opened one that sells a little bit of everything and called it The Little Shop.

What’s different about The Little Shop is that this bodega has a secret door in the back that takes you to an entirely different world.

Dan Mannarino takes you behind the racks of drinks and snacks, to a secret bar and lounge.
