Founded in 2005, the same year the Fulton Fish Market vendors were moved from Lower Manhattan to the Bronx, New Amsterdam Market long advocated the restoration and revival of the Old Fulton Fish Market sheds on the East River.

Housed within the
Tin Building and New Market Building, New Amsterdam Market would have served as a vibrant cultural and economic anchor to the neighborhood around it. Known today as the "South Street Seaport" these buildings, streets and piers in fact comprise a 19th century Market District, whose origins reach even further: to the foundation of New York City and its original maritime economy.
