Wow. Times change. «Louis» had no idea that the famous Fulton Fish Market is closed.

Something like this really steams me. They had to drive the Fulton Fish Market from its old Manhattan home out to the Bronx, and now it sits empty, the land not made into anything better. All that said, great photo!

Imagine what a great exhibition space that would make?

Lovely contrast

Have a great weekend
ciao

It feels so desolate, but then if it's abandoned... makes sense. A neat place for a photo shoot.

Something about the quality of the color and light in this photo feels to me like one of those pretty, old souvenir postcards. It feels like there must be a happy beach scene just beyond the sad empty building!
