A fire consumed the famed Fulton Fish Market鈥檚 century-old Tin Building on the afternoon of March 29, 1995. About 15 of the nearly 60 different businesses at the market operated out of that building. The four-alarm blaze left the structure in ruins and sent plumes of black smoke over the city skyline that was visible for miles.
