Fish Market w/scungilli?

Hey all, I made a similar post on the Outer Boroughs board as I live in Brooklyn, but the closest answer I got is about an hour and a half round trip, so I'm hoping perhaps there's a better Manhattan solution.

Subject says it all, looking for fresh scungilli, ideally below midtown but I'll take what I can get.

      There was a fish monger at the Union Square market yesterday, selling fresh conch for $10/lb, pre-cooked, I picked up 1/2 lb simmered in some homemade fra diavola sauce and it was absolutely fantastic. I forget the vendor's name, but they were on US West and he said they were going to try and have it pretty regularly, highly recommended!

      Scungilli is the same as conch?
      If so, try chinatown fish markets sometimes have live ones.

        I always see conch at the wet market on the southwest corner of Grand and Chrystie.
