RIP Newstands

Less than 20% of newstands remain in NYC from their peak in the 1950s.


Only nostalgia remains for business travelers like me who were addicted to the experience of buying a newspaper and a morning bagel for the subway ride. All eyes including mine are transfixed to a small screen. Only few commuters are reading the newspapers of yesteryear.

Newstands have become snack trucks. Traditional journalism is becoming obsolete.
