Thought for the day

"I offered my opponents a deal: "if they stop telling lies about me, I will stop telling the truth about them"." -- Adlai Stevenson, campaign speech, 1952

These photos, taken by photographer Gordon Parks, capture the Fulton Fish Market in lower Manhattan and document the path of a new catch from New England fishermen's boats to vendors' stands. The Fish Market was originally a wing of Fulton Market, which was established in 1822 to sell a variety of foods and produce. In November 2005, Fish Market moved to a new facility in Hunts Point in the Bronx, from its historic location near the Brooklyn Bridge to the East River waterfront and above Fulton Street in the Financial District, Lower Manhattan. During its 183-year tenure at the original site, Fulton Fish Market was the most important wholesale East Coast fish market in the United States.
