This week we heard the sad news that Carmine's at the Seaport closed after 107 years. It never ceases to amaze me how places so old can just shutter like that, after everything they withstood to survive.

As Lost City said, it "was one of the few remnants left of the old, rough, Fulton Fish Market seaport, the streets that Joseph Mitchell walked in his day."
I took these photos a few years ago, the one time I stumbled in, and found the place to be a treasure. I wish I could've gone back for a last meal.
There may be hope. Grieve tells us that a "reliable source told me that the owner is planning on reopening a little further down on Front Street in a few months."
