Historic N.Y. fish market leaves waterfront site

NEW YORK (AP) — The historic Fulton Fish Market shut down in Lower Manhattan, leaving its waterfront site after more than 180 years for a new facility in the Bronx.

The market, the center of the city's seafood industry, closed Friday. On Sunday night, workers move to the $85 million New Fulton Fish Market.

"Big guys ain't supposed to cry, but a part of old New York is dying here today," said Joey Centrone, one of the workers at the market. "I recognize this place is antiquated, but it's a part of us."
