City officials are throwing their support behind a proposed regional fresh food market for the South Street Seaport, according to Crain’s. The food emporium, which would move into the former Fulton Fish Market space that has remained vacant since the market moved to the South Bronx in 2005, has generated enthusiasm among community groups and City Council Speaker Christine Quinn, who said it would help economic development in the area. Julie Menin, chair of Community Board 1, said it would be a major boon to the area as well. “Lower Manhattan is the fastest growing community in New York City, and there is a pressing need to bolster our neighborhood’s infrastructure, services and amenities to accommodate this rapid growth,” Menin said.
