The Disappearing Face of New York.

STORE FRONT provides an irreplaceable window to the rich cultural experience of New York City as seen through its neighborhood shops. These stores have the city’s history etched in their facades.

They tirelessly serve their community, sustaining a neighborhood’s diverse nature and ethnic background, in a city with an unmercifully fast pace and seemingly insatiable need for change. Each is as unique as the customers they serve and have at their heart, owners who share a commitment to provide a unique service and in turn cement a neighborhood’s foundation.

Through revealing interviews with shop owners and its unprecedented oversize images, StoreFront scours the city and provides an indispensable guide to the city’s timeworn shops.

From humble neighborhood stores tucked away on narrow side streets to well-known institutions on historic avenues, anyone with a love of New York City will cherish being given a visual walking tour far beyond the scope of even the most thorough visitor or observant resident.

Thanks for the support! There is lots of graffiti in the book too because it does document the streets of NY. Lots of tags and throwies on the store gates and door panels.
