The Manhattan Terminal for ferry service between Brooklyn and Manhattan was located between the current Piers 17 and 18 at the South Street Seaport. In 1814 Robert Fultonís steam-propelled ferry on the new Fulton Ferry line to New York was introduced. The 'Road to the Ferry' was renamed Fulton Street in honor of the inventor. Fulton Market - across the street from Schermerhorn Row - first opened in 1822. The current Fulton Market building is the fourth to both share the location and name. The historic Fulton Fish Market dates back to 1835.
