Out Of Town News, Cambridge

(40 reviews on the web)
Landmark
Out of Town News is an iconic newsstand located in the center of Harvard Square, Cambridge, Massachusetts.The newsstand was long noted for stocking the leading newspapers from around the nation and around the world. Customers, especially academics, would come long distances to get the most recent editions of their home town paper, or of newspapers from parts of the world where important news events were unfolding.In 2008, it was announced that the newsstand might go out of business because its unique function of supplying yesterday's Times of India or Le Monde, flown in overnight, was made obsolete by the ability to read them online. However, in January 2009 a new owner signed a lease to take over the newsstand and keep it alive.Since the MBTA Red Line extension was finished in the 1980s, the newsstand has been housed in the former MBTA kiosk, a National Historic Landmark built in 1928 as a shelter for the Harvard Square stop on the Boston Elevated Railway, a precursor to the MBTA.
