Lucky Newstand

Lucky. Really? You wouldn’t think so by the condition of this newsstand’s sign. But maybe we’re just judging a book by its cover. It’s what’s on the inside that counts–newspapers, magazines, Lotto tickets and Snickers bars. Not only may we be looking at the “lucky” newsstand, we may be looking at the “luckiest” on Earth. Now that’s something, isn’t it? Does that mean buying a Lotto ticket here improves one’s odds of winning? Lucky Newsstand was closed when we snapped this photo while walking north on Bowery in Chinatown. Needless to say, the kiosk can use a bit of polish and maybe even a makeover. And what’s with that font used on the sign? Or, rather, what is that font? On weekdays, Lucky Newsstand bustles with swift, “lucky” business, but on a late Sunday afternoon, it seems unlucky.
