With the publication of Storefront, the Murrays have turned their attention towards faithfully documenting the generations-old stores and shop windows of New Yorkís neighborhoods. Within the pages of Storefront, the reader may explore entire blocks that have not changed much in the past century, engaging in startling encounter with contemporary New York.

Details of an architectural and cultural heritage that is fast disappearing such as signage, architectural adornment, and window displays are presented in context, as they exist on the street, all in amazing detail. Between the collected interviews with the shop-owners, and photos from every nook and cranny of New York, Storefront is sure to evoke feelings of nostalgia in hardboiled New Yorkers, visitors and ex-pats alike.
