We hear the old newsstand on Water and Fulton has been Cemusaed. Grieve has a shot of how it was before, a battered green box, tough and reliable-looking, like an old lunchbox. And now it's another blank spot in the world.
In the Village, here's the one that replaced the lovely, lively brown stand at West 4th. Another nothingness.
What remains? Lately, the Village's newsstands have been slaughtered. But here's one lone survivor at 6th and Waverly. It's a beauty with its pitched roof and caged storm lights, its jaunty awning like the short bill of an umpire's cap, its hunter green coat of paint. How long will it last?
