In their book Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York, author/photographers James and Karla Murray provide an intimate view of the mom-and-pop stores of New York’s neighborhoods including Greenwich Village. The Murrays will share interviews and photographs from their book, revealing how neighborhood stores help set the pulse, life, and texture of their communities.
Following their talk, the Murrays will lead a panel discussion with local store owners from Greenwich Village, including the Ottomanelli Brothers of Ottomanelli & Sons Prime Meat Market, Peter Longo of Porto Rico Coffee, and Matt Umanov of Matt Umanov Guitars.
