Beautiful New York

A Celebration of the City

Quotable NYC

bim-bw-fulton-fish-market“Every now and then, seeking to rid my mind of thoughts of death and doom, I get up early and go down to the Fulton Fish Market. I usually arrive around five-thirty, and take a walk through the two huge, open fronted market sheds. The smoky riverbank smell, the racket the fishmongers make, the seaweedy smell, and the sight of this plentifulness always give me a feeling of well being, and sometimes they elate me.” — Joseph Mitchell
