Katy's was founded in 1969 by Katy Keyzer. When Karla and James photographed this candy 🍭 shop in 2004 for their book, “Store Front: The Disappearing Face of New York” they interviewed Katy and she told them that she, “has been through the dope, crack, and everything else this neighborhood has thrown at me. I speak three languages, English, Spanish and Motherfucker. You've got to be tough to survive around here." Sadly Katy was forced to close her business in 2007 when the landlord raised her rent very high in order to ged rid of her and convert the building into a luxury condo.
