Chicago-Main Newsstand

Every magazine you’ve ever heard of, plus ones you didn’t even know existed

Chicag-Main Newsstand at night, by Karina for TKGO

As the site says, this place is “a candy store for your mind.” It’s a shrine for news and glossy magazines, and the broadest selection of periodicals for miles (and miles). In fact, they stock more than 600 newspapers and 6,000 magazines. Titles include everything from Nuts and Volts to The New York Review of Books, to Ceramics Monthly, American Cinematographer and Arizona Highways. They also carry out-of-town newspapers, both domestic and international.

There aren’t too many old school newsstands like this one still around — Hudson News doesn’t count — such that it has a slight nostalgic feel to it. Enter prepared to idle away hours looking at titles and flipping through magazines, and to spend money. I’ll wager you won’t be able to walk out without purchasing something.
