Overview
Country Store to Corner Market: New York offers an engaging and enlightening look at country stores from early dry goods and general stores to mom-and-pop markets. The book traces the history of stores on the rural roadside to neighborhood groceries in the city. It continues on to open-air markets with pushcarts crowded curbside, early supermarkets, and large city markets. The book encompasses a unique and varied region that stretches from the Atlantic Ocean high into the Adirondack Mountains. From small town to industrious metropolis, Country Store to Corner Market: New York weaves a popular history of these ventures from colonial days to the bustling city markets of today. Mostly, it is a story of people and their common bond to their hometown, neighborhood, and each other. Through captioned photographs of storekeepers and customers, this book emphasizes everyday life from buying fresh fish and vegetables from a pushcart vendor to picking up sugar at a corner market while visiting with a neighbor. Country stores and corner markets were once the gathering place for everyone in small town and city neighborhood. So, stroll along rural roads and city streets, and enjoy these touching and sometimes humorous glimpses into the lives of New Yorkers when they were once young.
