Storefronts of Manhattan / 16" x 20" Print
A tribute to the icons of Big Apple streets, and a little history lesson right on your wall! For any lover of old retail and signage, New York is the starting point, the center of the universe. Designed in blue and orange to pay homage to the official flag of Manhattan, this print celebrates 12 classic Manhattan storefronts like Russ + Daughters, Clover Delicatessen, Block Drug Store, and the Joyce Theater. These independents and family businesses continue to provide our neighborhoods with character and a connection to history. Sadly, they're fading fast in the era of big boxes and gentrification. Designer and illustrator Ted Zahn draws detailed restorations of each, creating minimalist portraits that immortalize each storefront in a pristine state, painstakingly recreating architectural detail.
Each print is 16" x 20" with a .75" white border around, digitally-printed on acid-free, archival-quality, uncoated #100 weight cover stock. It will ship in a rigid 18" mailing tube.
10% of the sale price of each print will be donated to the New York Mayor's Fund for COVID-19 Emergency Relief, supporting local businesses, health care workers, hourly workers, and families.
