We will visit some of the remarkable #momandpop #storefronts documented in our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York" and "New York Nights" and remember those that have disappeared. We will stop in many culinary specialty stores and sample #food David's Shoe Store and Repair in the East Village closed in 2013 after a rent increase forced him to move out of the area. It had been operating as a shoe repair business for over 35 years and before being owned by David and David's grandson, it was called A. Brym Shoe Repairing. We loved this #handpainted #sign in the window as well as the overhanging sign.
