New Amsterdam Market May Relocate to Manhattan Bridge Archway in Dumbo

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.

According to The Architect Newspaper, the tentative debut is June 28. But as Curbed reminds us, it's really not a done deal yet.
