vanishing 'mom & pops' stores reappear like ghosts in the middle of a NY park - designboom 06.28.08


"history never ceases to repeat itself. things that are taken for granted eventually vanish, only to become revered with nostalgia. this public installation entitled ‘mom & pops of the L.E.S.’ exemplifies this cycle. it was the vision of karla and james murray, who have worked as photographers documenting the changing streetscape of new york. over the years, they have created many beautiful books which illustrate iconic city stores sadly going extinct."
