I'm scanning my slides and found many from the incipience of the South Street Seaport in lower Manhattan. This photo is from 1973 when the area was beginning to be developed. The seaport itself was operational but the surrounding area was still basically the old Fulton Fish Market. Now it has been developed into one of the city's trendiest spot with restaurants, bars and upscale shops. This cat was just sitting on the edge of a building that was to be converted into boutiques and other shops. I must admit that the seaport was developed tastefully. It's a great place to visit.
