The Fulton Fish Market was established in 1822 in New York City and located for the majority of its existence in lower Manhattan. Starting in 2005, the market moved up to Hunts Point in the Bronx.
A recent trip to the New Fulton Fish Market yielded a great purchase of an Arctic Char. Not only was the fish incredibly fresh but it cost $5.90/lb. The fish was just over 3 pounds and came to a total of $18. This same fish in a market in the city would cost around $15/lb and in a restaurant could easily be over $20 per plate. (Editors note: I did take a cab to and from the market at 3am and am not factoring in the cost of both those trips.)

By Seth Fera-Schanes I was walking to a store this weekend and saw a red food truck parked out front. Since I am always looking for quality Mexican food around the city, I made a quick detour. A few things on the menu stood out immediately, specifically the […]
By Seth Fera-Schanes The Lobster Place is one of my favorite businesses in NYC. Located in Chelsea Market in the Meatpacking District, this fish monger has knowledgeable staff and incredibly fresh fish. Fish are available for purchase and to take home but it seems like the majority of […]
