Opened in 1822, the Fulton Fish Market in lower Manhattan was for decades one of the largest markets in the United States, a nexus of commerce both for large seafood wholesalers and people looking to pick up something for dinner.

Here, Office of War Information photographer Gordon Parks documents the path of a fresh catch from the boats of New England fishermen to the vendors’ stands.

In 2005, the Fulton Market relocated to the Bronx after 183 years in lower Manhattan.
