Photographers and authors James and Karla Murray presented a wonderful illustrated lecture "On the Block: Capturing the Disappearing Storefronts of NYC's Lower East Side" sponsored by LESPI at the Neighborhood Preservation Center May 28, 2014. The couple shared photographs and interviews from their books, STORE FRONT - the Disappearing Face of New York and New York Nights, presenting an intimate view of the city’s and particularly the historic Lower East Side’s mom-and-pop small businesses. Their beautiful storefront images and proprietors’ stories revealed how neighborhood stores help set the pulse, life, and texture of their communities.
