Since 2009, photographer Gail Victoria Braddock Quagliata has been taking pictures of New York City bodegas, something she started for her master's thesis. "Called 'Every Bodega in Manhattan,' her photo project, some of which is online, now includes more than 4,000 stores. It is a visual record, if not a virtual scrapbook, of the idiosyncratic mom and pop stores and the neighborhoods they serve." Click through some of the photos here. [WSJ]
