Views: History Of New York’s Fulton Fish Market

The Fulton Fish Market in New York is celebrating its 200th anniversary this year. Jeff Glor goes inside and takes a look at the market’s history.

Each night the colorful market would come to life with its cast of characters, eager chefs and curious tourists, all mingling over bushels of oysters, crates of lobsters and a kaleidoscope of sea creatures from near and far. Perhaps more than any other institution, the Fulton Fish Market captured the spirit and tradition of old New York.
