Kibbitz & Nosh: New York City’s Vanishing Cafeterias
Photographs by Marcia Bricker Halperin
Opening reception: Saturday, April 15, 5-7:00pm
During the early to mid-20th Century, the streets of New York City were filled with hundreds of cafeterias, and self-service eating establishments. One particular restaurant, Dubrow’s Cafeteria in Brooklyn, was a legendary institution. New York City-based photographer Marcia Bricker Halperin documented Dubrow’s and other cafeterias in their waning days, drawn to the memorable faces and the liveliness and sorrow of urban life in that vanished world.
