It took James and Karla Murray over eight years to make a photo series on small 0ld shops of New York. By now one third of these shops are closed. Their book ”Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York” is filled with photos of these bankrupt stores that represent nothing more than a vague memory. This book is a visual guide to New York City’s timeworn storefronts, a collection of powerful images that capture the neighborhood spirit, familiarity, comfort and warmth that these shops once embodied. Almost all of these businesses are a reflection of New York’s early immigrant population, a wild mix of Irish, Germans, Jews, Italians, Poles, Eastern Europeans and later Hispanics and Chinese.
