So, odds are you're going to run into one of these new newsstands designed by Grimshaw Architects very soon. Fourteen have made an appearance so far, mostly on the Upper West Side. If they look familiar, it's because they're cousins of the new bus shelters appearing everywhere. A Spanish company called Cemusa is putting in 330 newsstands and 3,300 bus shelters over the next several year. Can't wait to see the public toilets.
