Artist Randy Hage has combined his experience creating television and film sets with his love of New York street photography to create a series of miniatures that truly have to be seen to be believed.

Hage has been photographing New York storefronts since the late 1990s. Using his own photographs of the increasingly rare mom and pop shops, he then created painstakingly detailed scale models of the businesses' storefronts.

The miniatures will be displayed in Flower Pepper Gallery in Pasadena, California from October 10-November 18 if you’re planning a trip to the West Coast. In the meantime, see how many iconic New York stores, restaurants and bars you recognize below.
