Great pictures of colorful store fronts, all around Brooklyn neighborhoods that are very familiar to me.
However, the book is only slightly bigger than a postcard in its dimensions.
If I had browsed this book in a bookstore, I most likely would not have purchased it.
While the subject matter is great. The facing page of each picture is simply white, leaving a lot of empty space in the book. I think this would be better in a larger format, so the viewer might really examine the details of the interesting street life that is so unique.
So take a slow walk through the pages of this nostalgic collection of Americana. Stop at the Best Fish Market on Fulton Street in Cypress Hills, or purchase fresh produce from Golden Gate Fancy Fruits and Vegetables on Flatbush Avenue. Repair and purchase TVs, VCRs and computers at Save1 Electronics, with its wavy, hand-lettered marquee. Maybe you will discover that favorite record album in a recessed corner of New Lots Music, or select duck, lamb or goat at Bacchus West Indian Market. Everyone's needs are catered to at the Peace and Love Unisex Beauty Salon, where you can rent a stylist's booth or a nail table and enjoy local gossip with the other beauticians and barbers. The bright red paint of Ferailles Botanica promises candles, incense and oils; in contrast, Carlos Shoe Repair in Flatbush advertises its presence in sunshine yellow.Read more ›

Looking up a number of these addresses on Google Street - I've found that many of them no are no longer the same business. I'm amazed at how some of them have changed since they were photographed for this book.

The book "Brooklyn Storefronts" was exactly what I wanted. It had pictures and descriptions of the old New York that I once knew. It was just fine. Thank you.Published on May 26, 2014 by Kindle Customer
The author uses storefront signage photos as art. Good as an historical piece of Brooklyn. Happy to find that it included a picture of my family's store, Yoly Fabrics!Published on May 26, 2013 by lucinda chaney
This was purchased as a little gift for my husband, who was born and raised in Brooklyn in the 50's, 60's and early 70's. I thought it would bring back some fun memories. Read morePublished on June 4, 2010 by Debbi Feiner
