Check Out This Time Lapse of Seward Park Art Installation "Mom-and-Pops of the LES"

Photographers James and Karla Murray have turned their popular photobooks Store Front and Store Front II into a physical public art installation in the Lower East Side's Seward Park. The installation has large printouts of the vanished mom & pop storefronts placed onto physical structures. In this short video from 6sqft, see how it all came together.

This time-lapse video shows iconic "Storefronts of New York" photographers James and Karla Murray installing their art piece "Mom-and-Pops of the LES" in Seward Park. The installation depicts four nearly life-size photos of Lower East Side business that have mostly disappeared--a bodega, a coffee shop/luncheonette (the recently lost Cup & Saucer), a deli (Katz’s), and a newsstand (Chung’s Candy & Soda Stand).
