My Favorite NYC Magazine Shop
In a world where print media is slowly dying and being replaced by boring electronic likenesses, the fashion world is still firmly embedded in the physical. Buying and reading a nicely printed and bound magazine is one of my favorite small pleasures and when it comes to choosing which mag to buy next, there's no better shop than Universal News on 14th Street. At face value it looks like any magazine shop- small counter to buy coffee, racks of magazines, nondescript and bland signage. But Universal News lets the publications they stock speak for themselves. All artsy, fashion related magazines can be found here- Homme+, V Man, Purple, Vogue in a plethora of languages, Gap Press... if it has to do with fashion, they probably have it. If you're having trouble finding a good magazine shop in the city, this one's for you.
