I absolutely love the raw beauty of these richly colored images of age-old New York City storefronts from James and Karla Murray‘s book Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York.

Sadly, at least a third of the stores in the book have closed since its publication, making the photographs evoke even more feelings of nostalgia in New Yorkers, visitors and ex-pats alike.
