Come spend your Sunday at New Amsterdam Market. Sunday the 18th is the last day of the market until next spring. Come enjoy local and artisan goods, gifts, and goodies. It’s a blast I swear, and Healthy Homo approved.Hope to see you there.
New Amsterdam Market is held from 11am to 4pm on Sundays, at the old Fulton
Fish Market in Lower Manhattan which is located on South Street between Beekman Street
and Peck Slip.
New Amsterdam Market is a reinvention of the Public Market, once a prevalent institution in the City of New York. Revived for our present times and needs, New Amsterdam Market will incubate a new and growing economic sector: small businesses such as butchers, grocers, mongers, and other vendors who source, produce, distribute, and sell foods made with regional ingredients as well as carefully selected imports. We are also reintroducing and developing the concept of market fare prepared with regional, seasonal ingredients.
Our vision is to revive the historic Fulton Fish Market, a priceless public legacy that is owned by the people of New York and whose two market sheds have remained empty and unused since 2005. By bringing residents back to the Seaport, we are reviving the East River Market District —a rare fragment of our city’s first port and oldest commercial neighborhood— as a thriving, public destination for all New Yorkers.
New Amsterdam Market is currently held in the parking lot fronting the Fulton Fish Market
New Market Building. This landmarked structure is the last riverfront market house built in the City of New York and was dedicated for public use by Mayor LaGuardia in 1939. The adjacent Tin Building has marked the site of the original Fulton Fish Market since 1831. Public markets have been held in this District since 1642.
Letters from Men Who Go To Strip Clubs is an online project that launched on October 26, 2011. It was created by journalist and blogger Susannah Breslin, and consists of anonymous letters submitted by men who share their stories and experiences with visiting strip clubs.
This is a really interesting project because it provides another perspective from individuals involved in sex work - the consumers. This site provides clients with an outlet to share their voices without fear of shame or stigma, thus allowing insight into the human experience.
