On "The Rundown" with Nadia Neophytou!

Thank you Nadia for such a fun time and the great video running to some of our favorite store fronts in our neighborhood!

Watch the full episode:


"James and Karla Murray have been photographing shopfronts and store signs for over 20 years. I met them at an exhibition of their latest work, "Storefront: The Disappearing Face of New York," which chronicles some of the long-gone shops of New York City. 

I've been following their Instagram for a while now, and so it was great to be able to meet James and Karla -- and their dog, Hudson -- in person. Like James and Karla, I'm saddened by the numerous stores that close down in New York. With each one the city seems to lose more of its character. 

So I went for a run with Karla and Hudson (with camera-shy James not too far behind) as she showed me a few of the mom 'n pops stores still standing in the East Village and the Lower East Side. 

You can find the route here:

If you don't already follow their work, you can find James and Karla here:


The photos used in this video come from their books "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York", "New York Nights", and "Store Front II - A History Preserved." 

As for me, well, if you liked this video, and want to see me run all over New York, please subscribe to this burgeoning channel of mine.

Thanks, as always, to Mike B Fort, for his track Tokyo Nights
