Bornstein Seafoods, the real deal

Here's another of Astoria's businesses, and a very important one at that. It doesn't have a tricked out veneer, and it doesn't need one. It's all work, and all fish. For real. Bornstein Seafoods' loading dock is one of the buildings you pass on the River Walk. This isn't just a tourist town with some old buildings duded up for looks. There's one place on the walk where, at certain seasons, you can see the fish flopping down the chutes for packing on ice. In fact, if you're not careful, you can get wet and smelly. The seagulls flock here, too. I wonder why :) The paper sign that's too small to read says "NO SKATEBOARDING." Maybe it means on their truck ramp? I took the photo on April 10, 2009.

Many places don't want skateboarders around.....a great sign.

Isn't that where the seals come in too? To eat the discarded fish?
