All those who like to camp out and read NYT and other newspapers guess are going to find another spot to get their free fix.

Ditto for those who dig through SB garbage on Sunday's to get a free NYT.

I dunno....

Print media is dying a slow and painful death, especially newspapers.

Remember when going to work/school in the morning nearly everyone had their face buried in or was carrying a newspaper? Not so much anymore; everyone's eyeballs are glued to their phones, tablets or whatever.

Even the Sunday papers haven't escaped this trend. Really only some Boomers and their parents or grandparents generation seem stuck on reading printed media/newspapers of any sort. The younger generation goes with digital.

I don't see young people digging through SB garbage for NYT, only upper middle-aged and seniors. Now all that food SB throws away is another matter; there it is open season for all ages.

If SB cuts back on all those pre-made sandwiches and other packaged foods they sell (which large amounts are thrown away), that is going to hit many dumpster divers/homeless.

Starbucks is behind in this area. Most places stopped carrying newspapers years ago.

City spent all that money on those new newstands, and from what one can see many just are sitting empty.

Many supermarkets and other stores have stopped selling newspapers if not all printed media entirely.

Hahaha!

NYT took this picture in my area of UES; location is a several blocks away on Second and 80th. That new building across the street is a huge luxury condo tower being built by Icon Realty.
