The video shows the bad old days before the Thompson plan for the seaport was complete.

While combing the web for info on the early days of the South Street Seaport‘s Pier  17AN came across a Youtube video of Ben & Jane Thompson discussing plans for redeveloping the upland and the piers near Fulton Fish Market.  The short video, circa 1981, certainly puts the current debate on SHoP’s new design into historical focus, particularly when Ben Thompson speaks of retaining the now long gone market.
