I don't even know why TA is listing this place: it's a newsstand, no more no less. I've watched them in the last twenty years buy all newsstands around and grow. They don't smile, don't care and don't have any understanding of the concept of Service Industry. I walk by it almost daily (the location in Grand Central) and often... More

Very pricey large "newstand" in grand central. Then again any hudson news at large transportation hubs is the same. A lot of the employees with neutral attitudes. They try to keep overhead costs down by keeping the refrigerators at a higher temperature which I why I was never able to by a cold drink, it's cool more like room temperature,... More

Its a news stand. The people working there don't want to be there, they don't smile say thanks or anything like that. you just give them your money for your water and candy and go on your way,

A quick supply depot before you begin your travels. The typical stuff you expect at any Hudson News - drinks, magazines, snacks, etc. Prompt service and elevated prices, pretty standard.

You go here for water, snacks, and a magazine. Just like I did. At least this place was good enough to have 2 checkouts open.

There seems to be a Hudson News outlet in every transportation hub in town--airports, bus stations, train stations, etc. They sell a broad array of reading material. But tell me how this book and newspaper selling business qualifies as an attraction in New York City?
