The South Street Seaport Museum in Lower Manhattan is looking for a new operator, after its partnership with the Museum of the City of New York was now renewed.

The seaport museum has been struggling to recover after Hurricane Sandy knocked out the building's mechanical, heating and electrical systems.

Millions of dollars are needed for repairs.

The Museum of the City of New York took over running the seaport location in 2011.

A spokesperson says FEMA considers the museum a "nonessential nonprofit" and there is no clear path to receiving funding to rebuild.
