A typical newsstand in New York City.

A newsstand is a small business that sells newspapers, magazines, snacks and often items of local interest such as postcards and clothing emblazoned with sports team mascots. Newsstands typically operate in well-trafficked public places like city streets and airports.


The physical establishment can be either freestanding or part of a larger structure (e.g. a mall). On street corners in New York City, for instance, they are constructed of steel beams and aluminum siding and require a city permit to build and operate.
