Fulton Street Fish Market
I know this is not technically a Manhattan topic but does anyone know if there is somebody who gives tours of the new Fulton Street Fish Market. I would like to go early in the morning, see how the place operates and then, for real fun, buy a salmon and learn how to properly butcher it. Maybe this is a crazy idea but I would really like to find a way to do this.
Thanks for any info you might have.
The market moved to Hunt's Point, so you might have more luck posting on the Outer Boroughs board.
And @RIchardMW, South Street Seaport didn't replace the Fulton Fish Market. They co-existed for many years. The tourist-y part of South Street opened in the early 1980s, and the Fish Market didn't decamp for the Bronx until 2005.
re: small h
Thanks for the clarification. I knew it was gone and did not remember the details.
I once went to the old, Fulton St. Fish market around 5 AM one day in the early 1970s.
I do recall going to the last fragment of the fish market after the Seaport arrived. Probably that was in the late 1980s.
