Patsy's Restaurant Midtown (2010)

James and Karla Murray have been photographing the streets of New York City since the 1990s. Their new book, Store Front II, documents New York's Mom and Pop shops through photos and interviews with shop owners. From bodegas and record stores to the Stonewall Inn and The Pink Pussycat, the Murrays show the contrast between New York's iconic small businesses and the city's rapidly evolving corporate facade.
