the newsstand

is international. but for me it was always a big part of Hollywood. for years I wd wander from Hollywood Blvd to check out titles on view right there on the street on Las Palmas & Cahuenga.

last year Las Palmas Newsstand shut down. today World Book & News on Cahuenga shutterd.

I suspect the internet is partly to blame. people read papers & zines online rather than buying them.  whatever the reason this is part of my past which no longer holds hands with my present. now I'll have to look at old movies shot on location for glimpses of these famous newsstands.
