Anyway, I think we're all happy that the market concept is being revived. So here, for those nostalgia buffs, are some photos of markets past.
Borough Park, Brooklyn -- we actually shopped here when I was a child. I think the building is still there.
10th Avenue in Manhattan -- Not exactly the model market, by today's standards!
Merchants on Moore Street in Brooklyn
"Old" Washington Market in Manhattan
Wallabout Market, near the Brooklyn Navy Yard -- she was beautiful -- demolished for the war effort and expansion of the Navy Yard. She reflected the area's Dutch heritage.
Another view of Wallabout.
"Old Washington Market interior in Manhattan -- very dignified, with homage to the age of cast iron
"New" Washington Market exterior
Essex Street today
Essex Street -- still the queen of the remaining NYC Public Markets. But she is in an Urban Renewal Area on the Lower East side and prime for a housing site.
I don't remember where I got his one -- I didn't label it in the file. I'll find the reference later.
Hope you enjoyed this trip down memory lane -- more to come, as I unearth them.
