  • Store Front – The Disappearing Face of New York is a visual guide to New York City’s timeworn storefronts, a collection of powerful images that capture the neighbourhood spirit, familiarity, comfort and warmth that these shops once embodied.

    For many of these establishments, the photographs mark the end of a legacy. In the wake of gentrification, vital facets of New York’s cultural heritage are disappearing at an alarming rate.

    From tiny stores tucked away on narrow side streets to well-known institutions on historic avenues, this book presents the individual images and shop owner stories that together make up a collective history. Up until now, there has been little attention paid to New York’s storefronts; this book reverses that glaring omission and makes clear that the spirit of New York City is etched in its facades.
