We've lost another newsstand. One of the more interesting ones. From the corner of Broadway and 17th Street, this cluttered little beauty has vanished.
It has taken its street art-decorated backside with it.
And it has been replaced by this dull, blank box, another ticky-tacky nothing, a hollow mirror reflecting not much. On the back, where a shifting gallery of street art used to be, you will soon see an advertisement--for Jaguar cars or Coach bags.
This is how a city dies, little piece by little piece. A thousand cuts.
