A book we can really get behind – partly because we're a groovy local retailer, just like the ones featured in the pictures! The volume is exactly what's promised in the title – a beautiful look at storefronts in Brooklyn – from local grocery stores, to mom and pop neighborhood shops, to ethnic restaurants, and indie/underground retailers – all laid out in full color pictures, shot dead-on and presented with proportions that perfectly sum up the exterior space of the storefronts. The book's a great document of a world that vanishes bit by bit every year – and it instantly transports us to our favorite New York borough, and really shows the range of cultures we come across every time we visit! 158 pages, softcover, full color too!  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
