The Changing Face of New York’s Cherished Landmarks And Small Businesses

East Harlem StorefrontsPhotographers James and Karla Murray are on a mission to protect New York’s small spaces. They photographed beloved bars, restaurants and small businesses in New York City, and returned 10 years later to capture their latest incarnation. The photograph above is in East Harlem with the famous Barber Shop “Claudio’s” which really didn’t close but is just a few feet away. Most of the spaces have been replaced by chain restaurants and banks, while others have been abandoned. Most of the pictures appear in the couple’s 2008 book ‘Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York – 10 years later’
