The Fly Market

This would be where Maiden Lane met the East River. About the fly market, from new amsterdam public
In 1699, the so-called Fly Market (a corruption of the Dutch vly or valley) opened at the foot of Maiden Lane. Decade by decade, as the town grew north, its markets moved along the river towards Peck Slip again, where it had all begun.
