The Fulton Fish Market: Feasibility Report

Newark: Barnett & Herenchak, 1976. There were attempts to save and modernize the venerable market before it was finally forced out of Manhattan in 2005; it’s hard to imagine a more challenging project than the one these guys took on. Unions, mafiosi, and real estate developers were to agree on the three-phase proposal offered here: building rehabilitation, redesign of the Tin Building and "improvements in traffic flow coupled with improved fish handling"; a general expansion allowing the market to "function without relocating." Still a very thorough report, with nice atmospheric renderings, handsome elevations, science fiction traffic reroutings, etc. First edition. Oblong 8vo; 82 pp.; illustrated from plans and drawings. A good copy in original plastic comb-bound wrappers. Item #012041

Price: $50.00
