The Changing Storefronts Of New York

One of New York’s most fascinating properties is its state of constant evolution. And yet, when looking at photographers James and Karla Murray’s work, we can’t help but experience a bit of nostalgia. Worn, hole in the wall pubs, restaurants and shops have been lost to shinier, more contemporary franchises, to the point where New York’s historical uniqueness seems to be disappearing before our very eyes. The Murrays have released a book on the subject, but if you don’t have the time or the cash, you can check out the highlights on their Facebook page.
