LAST DAYS OF THE NEW YORK RESTAURANT
A series of 11 archival-quality framed prints were shown on the former premises of the iconic Kings Cross restaurant. The exhibition by local photographer Michael Gormly captures the restaurant, its hosts Paul and John, and several of its patrons not long before it closed in October 2010. The project celebrates the fifty-plus years the New York fed all comers with classic Australian food at budget prices, and builds a symbolic bridge between the past and present uses of the premises.

The images can be purchased here at negotiable and affordable prices - either as digital files or prints at any size on any medium.

As well as the framed prints, souvenir menus were exhibited and are still available at $20 - the menus are comb-bound in the style of the original and comprise photographs of the four-page menu taken in October 2010.

"This menu comes from a time before pasta, before confit, before Thai-style anything."
- John Newton, Sydney Morning Herald 2003
