The opening reception for our “STORE FRONT: The Disappearing Face of New York” exhibition will be Wednesday, July 25th 6-9pm.
One of our photos that we will be exhibiting is Mars Bar. This #analog photo was taken in 2005 and appears in our book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York". Roy, who passed away in 2010, was a fixture outside of this iconic #divebar and could also be found inside in the morning prepping it for the day. In 2011, this neighborhood bar closed after being in business since 1984 and the whole building was demolished to make way for a luxury apartment building. Today, a shiny glass TD Bank branch stands in its place.
We hope you can join us for our opening celebration 🎉 Wednesday, July 25th from 6-9pm @thestorefrontproject 70 Orchard Street in the Lower East Side (located directly across the street from one of our favorite clothing shops @ixneedxmore)!
