Remember when the Fulton Fish Market was going to move to the Bronx in June? And then yesterday? Yeah, that didn't happen.

It seems that part of the planned move meant removing some anti-mafia safe-guards put into place a decade ago. Specifically it meant taking a truck unloading monopoly away from the Laro company and allowing Market dealers to haul their own seafood. While this sounds reasonable at first, taking the Market's history into account one can understand why Justice Carol Edmead would think twice about essentially letting the city put Laro out of business. Does anyone else have the feeling the Market isn't going to move until at least next spring?
