New Amsterdam Market Kaput; 388 Bridge Street 75% Leased

New, 3 comments

SOUTH STREET SEAPORT—The New Amsterdam Market, a sustainable and local farmers market that's been operating off of the Old Fulton Fish Market site since 2007, is no more. It seems the operation came up against some economic hardships, and partially lost their space to Seaport redevelopment efforts. The market's founder wrote in an embittered farewell email,

... We were dealt a mortal blow in 2013 when Council Member Chin, who had long professed to support our cause, betrayed the community in favor of a suburban shopping mall developer, Howard Hughes. As a result, Lower Manhattan has already lost more than one acre of beloved and irreplaceable public space and is now seeing its most precious public asset ruined by inappropriate programming and terrible waterfront design. Oh, ouch. Meanwhile, Chin is unimpressed, "Mr. LaValva is trying to publicly blame me for something that he could have prevented by working more collaboratively with my office and the City." Ah, politics. [CurbedWire inbox; Eater NY; previously]
