"Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York" - Redux!

"Then-n-Now!"

For years, in bookstores, I've always found myself skimming through the amazing photo book, "Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York," by photographers James and Karla Murray. A decade after publishing the book, the Murrays have gone back to re-photograph the same storefronts to highlight how much they've changed (or, stayed the same) over 10 years. (Original photos are from the early 2000s.) Interestingly, I've always planned on doing the same thing (re-photograph the 'best of' NYC Corners) in five or ten years. Here's are some of James' and Karla's more "corner-friendly" samples...

Warriors rally from 25-point deficit after Spurs lose Leonard
OAKLAND, Calif. — Stephen Curry started the rally in the third to get Golden State going,
then Kevin Durant was determined to do his part in the fourth.
Two of the biggest stars on one side delivered when the best player on the other went down.
Curry scored 40 points and hit a tying 3-pointer with 1:48 remaining,
and the Warriors rallied from way behind after Kawhi Leonard was lost to an ankle injury to beat the
San Antonio Spurs 113-111 on Sunday in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.
