Brooklyn Historical Society's Photo of the Week 12.01.16: Katy's Candy Store from our book STORE FRONT: The Disappearing Face of New York.

"The photo of the week depicts the exterior of Katy’s Candy Store, a specialty candy shop located at 125 Tompkins Avenue in the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood of Brooklyn. The family-owned shop opened in 1969 and closed permanently in 2007. This photograph is part of an ongoing project by photographers James and Karla Murray to document storefronts in Brooklyn and New York City. A limited set of images from this project is part of the James and Karla Murray Counter Culture exhibition photographs collection at BHS, and was recently catalogued and published on our online image gallery."
