You want to understand Brooklyn?
Well, consider this quote from a store owner, relayed by photographers James & Karla Murray, who have been on a mission to capture disappearing storefronts in the city. Katy's Candy Store was at 125 Tompkins Avenue in Bedford-Stuyvesant. That's hardly the gentrified section of Bed-Stuy, but rent for that space is now much higher.
Note: I tend to speak that third language when I cross the street and encounter dangerous drivers and ebike riders.
