The Fulton Fish Market was a fish market located in New York City. It was founded in 1822 and was one of the largest and most well-known fish markets in the world. The market was located in Lower Manhattan, near the East River, and it was a major hub of commercial activity in the city. The market was known for its wide selection of fresh seafood, including fish, crabs, lobsters, and more. It was also known for its lively atmosphere, with traders and buyers shouting out prices and deals. In 2005, the Fulton Fish Market moved to a new location in the Bronx, and it was renamed the Hunts Point Fish Market. The old market site in Lower Manhattan was subsequently redeveloped for other uses.
