Upcoming: Check Out Brooklyn Storefronts

Brooklyn Storefronts

The book, Brooklyn Storefronts, which has just been published, will be presented by its author, Paul Lacy, at the Brooklyn Public Library on Wednesday, March 26 at 7PM. An email says it's "just 1 hour long = Totally do-able! and exponentially faster than wandering all over the Borough yourself, (though you may be inspired to do so). I will project the original digital images from the book, storefronts with handpainted signs and eye-catching window displays, and yes, many pictures that are not in the book: murals, flags, folk art, classic neon, astonishing found curiosities, and other out-takes. Come share your insights! Bring a friend!

The book has more than 75 color photos of, Brooklyn storefronts from the Bari Pork Store (King of the Sausage) and the Los Doctores Tires Shop to the Great Eagle Photo Company and St. Jude Religious Articles. The author photographed them on bicycle trips around Brooklyn. More info about the event here.
