Raul Candy Store 🍭in the East Village has been in business since 1979.

We love its #handpainted #signage and also appreciate that the owner really cares about the children in the neighborhood and has always tried to keep his prices low. When we interviewed him in 2003 he told us that “I’ve always tried to keep the neighborhood kids away from drugs.” Full interview with Raul appear in our book “Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York.”
