A Great Newsstand Photo. NYC June 1953

I love to collect old photos of newsstands. I just got back from the New Jersey Antiquarian Bookfair where I purchased this one.

The dealer was unable to date it but by looking at the magazines in the picture, especially TV Fan in the upper right hand corner, the date is June 1953. Here's the magazine, which happens to be the first issue.

The location is probably at the north end of Columbus Circle, with Central Park West to the left of the newstand. Enjoy a great piece of NYC magazine history!
