Store Front II - A History Preserved

The Disappearing Face of New York

2015 INDIES Winner
Silver, Regional (Adult Nonfiction)

James and Karla Murray have been capturing impeccable photographs from the streets of New York City since the 1990s; Store Front II chronicles their continued efforts to document a little-known but vitally important cross-section of New York’s “Mom and Pop” economy. From the Stonewall Inn to the Brownsville Bike Shop to Smith and Wolensky, the Murrays reveal how New York’s long-standing mom & pop businesses stand in sharp contrast to the city’s rapidly evolving corporate facade.
