Remembering Fulton Fish Market

Janes Walk

Led By Naima Rauam

The fish are gone, the smell is gone, but the legend lives on! This in-person walk in the South Street Seaport will visit sites of the old Fulton Fish Market.

Walk leader, artist Naima Rauam, spent decades painting scenes of market life. During this “then and now” walk, Naima’s paintings show “then” at nine locations, as the group stands “now” at these spots. A printed handout and a webpage with reproductions of the artwork will enable attendees to envision former market scenes. Naima talks about the history of the fish market and her experience working and living there. One of the sites is the historic Tin Building, where Naima once had an art studio. It is now reconstructed and repurposed from fish market building to a soon-to-open elegant food center.

Terrain is flat, most sidewalks have corner cut-outs, some street/sidewalk surfaces are stone-paved and rough, some sidewalks have been narrowed by outdoor seating arrangements and sheds in front of restaurants.
