Over the past eight years photographers James and Karla Murray have been photographing the vintage storefronts of New York as they slowly recede into memory. Their efforts have been collected in the book "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York". I've posted a couple of my favorites (my top choice being Marie's Beauty Lounge). They have a behind-the-scenes video about their quest which I've included below. More on their website.
