Even as New York constantly evolves, there are those stubborn holdouts that won’t ever go away.

One of those things is the newsstand. It’s that place you spend no longer than 60 seconds grabbing a Clif Bar or Snapple on your way to do whatever it is you need to do. And that’s what the folks behind The New Stand want to honor but also reinvent. As with a classic newsstand, the products inside are a perfect blend of nostalgia and invention. You can still pick up something to read and drink, but you can also get new headphones designed by the DJ cutting tracks behind the counter. Visit it in the video above.
