Robert LaValva has been lobbying to get the New Amsterdam Market inside the old Fulton Fish Market at the South Street Seaport for a while, but for a handful of reasons, it hasn't worked out. Now he's hoping to take the market—what he envisions to be a super-sized Greenmarket that runs year-round indoors, kind of like London's Borough Market or Philadelphia's Reading Terminal—to Dumbo. The archway under the Manhattan Bridge, formerly a dumping ground for the Department of Transportation, could be that new home.
