Closed! De Robertis Pastry Shoppe

A tragic loss to the East Village, De Robertis didn't close due to a rent hike or greedy developers. No, the owner is retiring and the kids aren't bakers. Photographed by the great James and Karla Murray. http://jamesandkarlamurray.blogspot.com/

Downing Street Storefront 2007

In the gentrified hell that is New York City, small businesses like this one (plumber), photographed not long after they vacated the premises, have been lost to soulless chain stores. I took this through a window, a week later - poof!

Beautiful "Green Point Savings Bank"

From the era when Greenpoint was still two separate words. The latest Brooklyn neighborhood to suffer the gentrification that has nearly destroyed the soul of NYC, Greenpoint has largely held on to its Polish culture with excellent bakeries and restaurants up and down Greenpoint and Manahattan Avenues.
