Vanishing New York

The Daily Beast recently published an article about one man’s blog, Jerimiah’s Vanishing New York,, which chronicles the disappearance of small stores and local restaurants from New York’s streets and neighborhoods due to extreme hikes in rent.

Scrolling through the blog made me so sad as I read multiple stories of many local businesses with long histories being shut down. Despite the sadness, it’s incredibly interesting and worth taking a look.
