Please join us as we lead a Store Front walking tour of the East Village and Lower East Side this Sunday, September 17th at 12 pm (noon) sponsored by the Municipal Arts Society of New York. @mas_nyc
The cost is $30 or $20 for MAS Members We will visit some of the remarkable #momandpop storefronts documented in our books "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York" "Store Front II-A History Preserved" and "New York Nights" and remember those that have disappeared. We will stop in many culinary specialty stores and discuss the origins of wonderful stores like Moishe's Bake Shop and even taste samples! Moishe's Bake Shop on Second Avenue at East 7th Street has been in business since the 1970s.

Tour will proceed rain or shine but Sunday is scheduled to be mostly sunny ☀️ and beautiful in the upper 70s! Also please note that this photo of Moishe's is an #analog photo from early 2000s when #graffiti was prevalent in this neighborhood and the #storefront has since been cleaned up but still has its large windows displaying all of its freshly baked goodies!
