Walking home from work on Friday night, I came across this giant catfish. It was outside of a little Bangladeshi shop on 73rd Street. As you can see from one of these (very bad) photographs, it weighted 184 pounds; it was probably about five feet long. I asked where it was from and was told it was from Pakistan – evidently flying frozen fish from Pakistan to New York is a very ordinary thing, which astounded me – you would think there would be an easier way to get fish. They wanted $800 for it, so I didn’t buy it.
