C&N Everything Store in the Morrisania neighborhood of the ‪#‎Bronx‬ was founded by Cobert and Novil Seward in 1956.

This amazing ‪#‎store‬ which sadly is no longer in business literally sold everything but the kitchen sink. When we interviews the owner Novil in 2003 she told us that they "sell everything from candy to pipe-fittings". The narrow aisles were packed with so much merchandise that we had to turn sideways to make our way through them. There were even items hanging from the ceiling! We will miss this great ‪#‎storefront‬ with its ‪#‎handpainted‬ ‪#‎sign‬. This photo and full interview appear in our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York".
