Photographers Document the Gentrification of New York City

Photos by James and Karla Murray

New York City has always been changing. But recently, the city has seen a wave of luxury condos and artisanal cupcake boutiques uproot local delis and dive bars.

To make sure we don’t forget the city’s past, two New York-based photographers, James and Karla Murray, set out to document the city’s transformation. The result was a book, titled “Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York,” in which they photographed of mom-and-pop stores around the city.

Now, they’re returning to those original locations to see what stands in their place.
