THE NEWSSTAND — Metropolitan / Lorimer Station
The subways in NYC make up a total underground city that lives and breathes just like the world above it. But, unlike the streets and communities above, people rarely interact or hangout in the underground. Lele Saveri, owner of Williamsburg, Brooklyn’s Lorimer Station Newsstand is looking to change that. A tiny little nook filled with hundreds and hundreds of printed zines (plenty by pro skateboarders), collectibles, and photo/art prints, the Lorimer Newsstand has converted an otherwise unused and forgotten corner into New York City’s most visible art gallery where he curates art shows for both unknown and celebrity artists.
