New York Newsstand Culture

In any typical work week, many on-the-go New Yorkers are likely to kick-start their mornings with a healthy breakfast of the New York Times, coffee, or soda, or maybe a can of Pringles snagged from a convenient newsstand. NYT photographer Rachel Barrett artfully documented and catalogued 236 newsstands over two years, from shiny Wall Street kiosks to humble, well-worn Harlem stalls, and even a few mom-and-pops in Midtown that were casualties of recent city buy-outs. Barrett’s series tells the biography of a city that, unlike flyover country, hasn’t completely succumbed to car culture. See the slideshow here.
