James and Karla Murray will be leading a tour through Greenwich Village on Saturday November 15th with the Municipal Art Society of New York City, visiting some of the iconic locations documented in their upcoming book Store Front II. The tour will pass by historic locations from the Murrays’ previous titles, Store Front and New York Nights, visit culinary specialty stores and music and performance venues, and pause to remember the iconic storefronts that have already disappeared from the Village. For tickets and other information, visit MAS NYC’s event page here.
The Murrays also have several other events upcoming to celebrate the launch of Store Front II: A slideshow and signing at Strand Books on November 16th, a moderated discussion at Rizzoli Bookstore on the 23rd, and a signing event at Powerhouse Arena on December 2nd. Store Front II – A History Preserved: The Disappearing Face of New York will be for sale each event, and is available now from Gingko Press.
